Designed in the Tudor style of architecture, the construction of the Bengaluru Palace began in 1862 and was completed in 1944. The erstwhile ruler of Mysore, Chamaraja Wodeyar, bought the palace in 1884, and today the family continues to own the palace and its sprawling four hundred acre grounds.

In addition to the fortifications on the exterior that includes towers, battlements, and turrets, the interior of the palace is replete with neo-classical furniture, wood pillars, artifacts, floral motifs, cornices, and relief paintings on the ceiling.

The ground floor consists of an open courtyard with granite seats that are covered with fluorescent blue ceramic tiles, as well as a small ballroom. Upstairs on the first floor, an elaborate and large Durbar Hall with enormous stained glass windows, reminiscent of the Gothic style, is accessed by climbing a decorated staircase that climbs past walls adorned with paintings.
