What this tour is about:
This is a full day excursion to the historic city of Mysore. The Kingdom of Mysore, established by the Wodeyars (and ruled for a short while by Haider Ali and Tipu Sultan), was one of the wealthy kingdoms of the Deccan. The Mysore kings were enthusiastic patrons of art and culture, and their legacies continue to influence music and art even today. It usually takes between 3.5 to 4 hours to reach Mysore from Bangalore. Drive time may vary based on traffic and road conditions. We will break for lunch at the Royal Orchid Metropole in Mysore.
