Jaganmohan Palace, Mysore

Published Date: 10-May-2024

Jaganmohan Palace has a unique place in the list of Mysore tourist places and is one of the seven palaces of this royal city. This 19th-century Hindu-style palace was built when a fire broke out and destroyed the old Mysore Palace and served as the residence of the royal family when the new palace was being constructed. This palace consists of an art gallery and an auditorium for traditional dances and other programs. The ornate carvings of Dasavatara (the ten incarnations of Vishnu) on wood are one of the most striking features of this architectural brilliance. The art gallery housed in the palace also has a stunning collection of South Indian artefacts, including some of the famous paintings by Raja Ravi Varma.

Ever heard of the famous painting Lady with the Lamp, also known as Glow of Hope? The painting portrays an Indian woman clad in traditional attire with a lighted lamp in one hand. This work of art is currently displayed in a dark room in the Jaganmohan Palace art gallery. The painting gives an illusion that the face of the woman is being illuminated by the glow of the lamp. Check it out and you will be amazed!
