Overall Guide : The Mysore Zoo is located on the exterior parts of the main city. The zoo is named as the “Chamarajendra Zoological gardens” but more popularly known as the “Mysore Zoo”. Most of the visitors make it a point not to... more miss. The Ambavilas Palace or more popularly known as the Mysore Palace is one of the major tourist attraction in Mysore . The palace was established in 1912. The architecture of the Mysore Palace is a total combination of the Gothic, Hindu, Rajput and Muslim fashion. The Mysore Palace is a well build structure with magnificent domes completely made out of pure marble. Vast gardens encircle the palace from all the sides. During the festival of Dasara and Diwali the palace is totally illuminated with thousands of lights. This is the best time for tourists to visit Mysore.    Also known as the “Doll’s Pavilion” the Gombe Thotti is a gallery for the collection of ancient doll’s which dates back to the 19th century.
