The Dasara festivities have a very long and rich history of more than 400 years.

Mysuru Palace : Mysuru Palace is one of the most magnificent buildings. It is a sight not to be missed when it is illuminated on Sundays and festive occasions. The interior of the Palace is equally worth a visit, for its spacious halls, paintings and architectural beauty. The palace is an excellent combination of Indo-Saracenic architecture. It is the official residence of the Wodeyars-the erstwhile royal family of Mysuru, and also houses two durbar halls (ceremonial meeting hall of the royal court).

The riginal oil paintings of Raja Ravi Varma of Travanacore,S.G.Heldenker’s painting of a Lady holding the lamp are few master piece that are displayed here.

Lalith Mahal Palace : The Lalitha Mahal is the second largest palace in Mysore. It is located near the Chamundi Hills, east of the city of Mysore in the Indian state of Karnataka. The palace was built in 1921 at the orders of His Highness Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, the Maharaja of Mysore for the exclusive stay of the then Viceroy of India. Built on a raising ground, the palace was fashioned on the lines of the St. Paul’s Cathedral in London and is one of the imposing structures of the Mysore city.

Vasanth Mahal : Vasantha Mahal Palace was built in 1842 by the ruler of Wodeyar Dynasty. It stands on 36 acre landscape and is nestled amidst lush green ambiance.

The specialty of this palace is that the facing portion of the palace is made of soft iron.

Cheluvamba Mansion : This Mansion was built for the third princess of Mysore-Cheluvajammanni. The Mansion is named after the princess and therefore called Cheluvamba Mansion. Like all the other mansions this one too is spread over a huge area and is surrounded by gardens. The Mansion is beautifully built like the other buildings of the time of the Wodeyars. All the rooms have splendid cravings and are a very good example of the architecture of the time.

Jayalakshmi Vilas : Jayalakshmi Vilas Mansion located inside the University of Mysore has many specialities. The overall appearance is of the building is in the typical imposing Greco-Roman fashion. But the interior is done in the native style using generous woodwork. The mansion houses the Folklore Museum, one of its kinds by any universities in India.
