Route Information

Route 1: Bangalore - NICE Road - Bidadi - Ramanagara - Channapatna - Mandya - Srirangapatna - Mysore. This is the more frequented route between Bangalore and Mysore. It is essentially a State Highway and there is a bit of traffic that you would need to put up with. The roads are not too wide but are in good condition.

 

Route 2: Bangalore - NICE Road - Harohalli - Kanakpura - Malavalli - Bannur - Mysore. The first section of this route is a National Highway and the second section, from Malavalli onwards, is a State Highway. Except for a small stretch in Bannur, the roads are good. This is the more scenic of the two routes and has much lesser traffic.

Royal Abode

Mysore, considered by many as the Cultural Capital of Karnataka, served as the capital of the Kingdom of Mysore until 1947. The Wodeyar dynasty which were the rulers of this kingdom are responsible for building some the iconic structures in Mysore today such as the Mysore Palace, which is also known as the Amba Vilas Palace. Put on display inside the palace are a whole lot of paintings, furniture and other royal artifacts.
