Tourist Places and Things to do in Mysore

Mysore, also called Mysuru, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the state of Karnataka owing to its rich cultural heritage and fascinating royal history. It is fondly referred to as the ‘City of Palaces’ and rightly so. The city has myriad historical places narrating tales of the medieval era, the most popular ones being Mysore Palace and Jaganmohan Palace. Other prominent places to visit in Mysore are Chamundeshwari Temple, Philomena’s Cathedral, Brindavan Gardens, and Mysore Zoo.

Tourists visiting Mysore can enjoy boating on Karanji Lake, explore the famous Rail Museum, admire the beauty of Bonsai Garden, ride a tonga or take a night walk across the city. Among other things to do in Mysore, shopping at the age-old Devaraja Market definitely tops the list.
Adventurers can take a trip to the waterfalls such as Chunchanakatte and Shivanasamudra. Somnathpur and Srirangapatna also make amazing weekend getaways from Mysore for religious travellers and culture enthusiasts.

The famous Mysore Dosa needs no introduction but that’s not all that you must eat while in the city. There are a number of South Indian and multi-cuisine restaurants in Mysore that serve heaven on a plate. Pelican Pub, Gusto, and Opium are a few of the nightlife hotspots for those who like to party.
