Palaces in Mysore are dealing with the miniature paintings, glass works and the colourful sculpture that is dominant in Rajasthan. Some of the palaces of Mysore are Jaganmohan Palace, Jayalakshmi Vilas Mansion, Lalitha Mahal, Mysore Palace and many other palaces.
Jaganmohan Palace is a palace in Mysore. It was called the Princely City of Mysore, India. The construction of Jaganmohan Palace was completed in 1861 and was initially used by the Wodeyars, kings of Mysore as their home (when the present majestic Mysore Palace that is Amba Vilas Palace, was under construction after the old palace turned into ashes owing to a fire accident). It is now converted into an art gallery and a function hall. The palace is one of the seven palaces of the royal city of Mysore and one of the most beautiful contributions of the Wodeyar Kings of the city during their regime. The royal family has innumerable contributions not only to Mysore but also to some of the most important present metropolitans like Bengaluru
Jayalakshmi Vilas is a building in Mysore of Karnataka. It is located in the green surroundings of Manasagangothri, the campus of the University of Mysore
. It rises on a hillock on the west side of Kukkarahalli Kere (lake). Jayalakshmi Vilas Mansion houses a museum of priceless collections of artefacts. The Karnataka government classifies it as a heritage structure.
Lalitha Mahal is the second largest palace in Mysore. It is located near the Chamundi Hills
, east of the city of Mysore in the Indian state of Karnataka
. The palace was built in 1921 at the orders of His Highness Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, the Maharaja of Mysore for the exclusive stay of the then Viceroy of India. Lalitha Mahal was built on a raising ground. The palace was fashioned on the lines of St. Pauls Cathedral in London and is one of the imposing structures of the Mysore city.
Mysore Palace is a historical palace in the city of Mysore in Karnataka. It is the official residence and seat of the Wodeyars, the Maharajas of Mysore, the royal family of Mysore, who ruled the princely state from 1399 to 1950. The palace houses two durbar halls (ceremonial meeting halls of the royal court) and incorporates a mesmerizing and gigantic array of courtyards, gardens, and buildings. The palace is in the central region of inner Mysore, facing the Chamundi Hills eastward.
Rajendra Vilas palace is located on top of Chamundi Hills, at an elevation of nearly 1,000 feet. An older building existed at the location that dated back to 1822, which was used as a summer palace by the Wodeyars of Mysore. Maharaja Krishnaraja Wodeyar
IV was taught philosophy and English in this building. The conception of a much larger building was initiated in the 1920s. The palace was commissioned by Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, and was completed in 1938-39. However, its plans were down-scaled due to financial issues. The building of Rajendra Vilas was not constructed as elaborately as planned.
