This majestic Bangalore palace, which is now a private property of the Maharaja of Mysore, the Woodeyar King, was built by their ancestors in the late 19th century. Built on the lines of the Windsor castle of Britain, wood has been extensively used in the making of the palace, complete with Gothic and foiled windows, battlements and turrets resembling the Daria Daulat Palace in Srirangapatanam. It is also famous for its carvings and paintings in the interiors of the palace. Being a private property of the royalty, it has been refrained from public visits. It can be only viewed from outside and no photography is allowed.
