Bangalore: Mysore Tour with Lunch and Guide

1. Bangalore: Mysore Tour with Lunch and Guide

The first stop is at the Summer Palace of Tipu Sultan, often called the Tiger of Mysore for his valiant fight with the British. Dariya Daulat Bagh, the Summer Palace of Tipu Sultan, is built in Indo-Sarcenic style and has a few magnificent murals depicting the war of Tipu with the British. The next destination is the notorious Bailey's Dungeon. Colonel Bailey's Dungeon is the famous dungeon where Tipu imprisoned several British Officers during the war. Tales about this notorious location will also be told throughout the tour. The magnificent Mysore Palace beckons you next. The Palace is a 3-storied stone structure, with marble domes and a 145-foot, five-storied tower. Your guided tour of the palace will take you through the Public Hall, Private Hall, Dolls Pavilion, and the Royal Wedding Hall. India’s first sand sculpture museum is the final destination on your tour. Conceived and built by Gowri, a leading sand sculptor, the sand museum took 4 months and 115 loads of construction sand to build. It is a unique museum where one finds the heritage of Mysore crafted into sand, and it is incredible to note that these marvelous pieces of art were made using just sand and water. After you have finished discovering this unique spectacle, you will be returned safely to your point of origin.

Amazing tour and you must book this one! Local guide and he me for a traditional breakfast of rice cake, lentil donut with amazing dipping sauces. Putti and medu vada I think are the traditional names. Next we went to the Mysore Palace and a local guide took over. Saw the delights of the royal palace and the amazing architecture and materials used. Next to the silk worm factory (other destination had Muslim protests so we had to avoid) where we had a tour of how the silk is extracted and spun into glorious fabrics. Very noisy and busy and amazing to see. Next stop a traditional lunch on banana leaf. I copied my guide to eat the local way. Food was incredible and not something I would have tasted without a local person taking me there. My guide chatted throughout the journey about the history of India and the areas, different cultures (additional to the main tour description). Although the tour was more expensive than others in India it is worth every penny! 10/10!
