Charge is per person Rs.240. +300 for mobile camera for group. Total waste of money nothing much to see. Better to take outside photos and spend same money for good food.

This is a unique structure in Bangalore, architecture is like a British castle (has some similarities with Windsor castle).
The cost for Indians is Rs 240 + 300 for mobile phone camera. It is absolutely worth it for the wealth of information and variety of architecture. An audio guide is included in the admission, one just needs to deposit their ID card to get the guide.
The palace has many sections such as ballroom, audience room, womens quarters, library, etc. Each of these has a lot of history which one can hear from the audio guide.
This was and still is the Bangalore residence of the Wodeyar kings of Mysore. In the past, luminaries like king of Austria and king of Spain have visited and stayed there.
There are a number of paintings by famous painters in the palace.
To summarise, it is a must visit for those interested in Indian history and how the kings used to live.

Hi, I visited this place and I would recommend every visitor who want to see beautiful architecture in banglore must visit.
The entry ticket is bit high and if u want to use camera then u have to pay much extra.
They provide free audio tour guide with every entry ticket so u need not a human guide , it's very nice idea.
Over all who love history and architect must visit

300 for one person and for mobile 240 rupees. It's not worth. Very expensive really. If you feel like you don't have that money to spent, you are not losing anything. Nothing inside really.
