Mysore is known and visited for the Mysore Palace. The grandeur of the palace even today is such that its nothing short of an experience just queuing up to take a look at it. The Palace is lighted on Sundays and holidays. A fully lighted up palace in the evenings on Sundays, holidays and some state festival days (Like Dussera).
 
Beyond Mysore Palace there is Srirangapatna Tipu Palace (15 kms). Somnathpur Temple (50 kms), Talakadu backwaters (50 kms), Mysore Zoo, Brindavan Gardens (20 kms) and Chamundi hills.
 
Mysore may wear a city look but its still packs enough punch for a family traveler as well as a general getaway seeker.
