Mysore is one of South India's most enchanting cities, famed for its glittering royal heritage and magnificent monuments and buildings. Its World Heritage–listed palace brings most travellers here, but Mysuru is also rich in tradition with a deeply atmospheric bazaar district littered with spice stores and incense stalls.

The Kingdom was ruled by the Wadiyar dynasty. Mysore Dashera is celebrated with great pomp and grandeur for ten days and people from every corner of the globe visit this city during the festival. There are some notable heritage structures in Mysore like the famous Mysore Palace and the Jaganmohana Palace.
