It was one of the most exciting trip of mine. Both of us (me and my friend) planned extensively for this trip. Upon reaching Bangalore from our respective home town on a Friday night, we started early on a Saturday morning.
We had hired a car for 4 days to take us around. It took us 3-4 hours to reach Mysore with breakfast break in between. Our first stop was the famous Mysore Zoo. And i have to say it is one of the best zoo i have seen till date. All animals and birds are in healthy state here. Extremely planned zoo. The best thing i found here spotting of all the animals mentioned on the respective boundary wall/cage.
Post lunch, our next stop was Chamundeshwari Temple on the Chamundi Hills. Being one of the oldest temple, it has become the must visit place for tourists. Though the temple is nice, its architecture is beautiful.
We took three brief stopovers at Mahishasura Statue, Nandi Bull Statue, St. Philemonia Church before moving to Maharaja Palace, one of the most visited attraction point famous for its light and sound show.
The Palace is very beautiful with its Indo-Saracenic style of architecture.The light and sound show is good but could have been better. It is slightly overrated.
Our day ended with an amazing dinner at our Hotel.
