Mysuru

The Master Responds

Mysuru, the erstwhile capital of the princely state of the same name, evokes memories of grand palaces, opulent royals, magnificence and splendour. The second-largest city in Karnataka, it is rapidly metamorphosing into a modern city while retaining large vestiges of its splendid history.

It is located about 146 km southwest of Bengaluru at the base of the Chamundi Hills. While the palaces, European architecture, and princely celebrations speak of the rich traditions of the city, its commerce, the gardens and the sporting clubs underscore its drift towards modernity. It is home to the Mysore silk sari and Mysore pak.

The city served as capital of the Kingdom of Mysuru until 1947. It was also among the five princely states accorded the status of a 21 gun salute by the British. Except for a brief period in the 18th century, the kingdom was ruled by the Wodeyar dynasty. The Wodeyars were patrons of art and culture and contributed significantly to the cultural growth of the city.
