OVERVIEW

Floohoo Travels offer Lalitha Mahal Palace Tour Packages. Choose from a wide range of tour packages based on your interests and needs.Visitors are greeted by a splendid view of the Chamundi Hill to one side and the city of Mysore straight ahead when they reach the upstairs balcony.

The palace was built by the then Viceroy of India in 1921, but today it is a 5-star heritage hotel. Designed in the English Baroque architectural style, reminiscent of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, the two storied structure is painted a pristine white. Stained glass that decorates the skylights, doors, windows and ceilings adds a muted but colourful elegance to the interiors. The palace also contains an exquisitely designed viceroy room, a banquet hall, a dancing floor and an Italian marble staircase, all embellished with exquisite ornamentation's influenced by British culture. The visitor will then see full length portraits of the Wodeyar Kings, Italian marble floors, Belgian crystal chandeliers, stained glass windows and doors, skylights, delicate cut glass lamps, heavy ornate furniture, mosaic tiles and a couple of exquisite Persian carpets - all reflective of the lifestyles and history of the erstwhile rulers of Mysore.
