India Holidays - The Maharajah's Palace at Mysore

Visit the extravagant Indo-Saracenic Maharajah's Palace, a riot of domes, arches, carved pillars and marble floors which contains a wealth of treasures including the jewel-encrusted Golden Throne. At night the palace takes on another aspect when illuminated (shown right below).  Afterwards drive through the wide boulevards of this well-planned city and up the winding road to Chamundi Hill to see the enormous 5-metre high Nandi Bull (below left), carved in 1659 from a single piece of black granite. This magnificent statue has become an object of worship, and is adorned with bells and garlands, and tended by his own pries.
