About
The Bangalore Palace was the private residence of the royal Wodeyar family. Built to resemble Windsor Castle, this quirky palace is filled with an interesting and eclectic collection of art and paraphernalia from a bygone era. The palace grounds are a popular venue for rock concerts and other music events.

We just visited the Bangalore Palace recently with my boyfriend and it is very historic. You can have the audio guide for you to know the history.

An amazingly colourful palace from the 19th century. There is a good audio tour included as part of the ticket. Also there is some beautiful artwork there.

Entry is allowed only after purchase of ticket.
The ticket cost 240 rupees each and if you are using mobile camera additional 300rs has to be paid.
There is a audio guide available(mobile phone and a earphone supplied) which can be played at marked spots to understand the significance of that spot.
The palace has many beautiful and vivid locations for capturing.
There is a garden outside the palace through which you can roam around and click pictures.

Beauty at it’s finest. The palace is really beautiful and classy. The interiors are at its finest. They give you a device that explains about the palace to you. Entry fees are fine, can be paid. But there will be an extra charge to pay for taking pictures. I feel like paying for entry is fine, but additional charges for taking pictures are very costly and unnecessary. And the cost for that is really high. The palace is very crowded as well.

Pros:
It is a beautiful heritage.
You’ll be able to see clothes of royal family.
You will know about the palace more and the history of it.

Cons:
It has unnecessary charges
Too much crowd
Too costly for no reason
You’ll be wasting your money if you don’t want to know about the palace.

Constructed by the Royal family of Mysore. It is a private property. Parts of it are open to the public at a fees. Rs 240 per head alongwith an audio guide. Latter available in various languages. Must take a personal ID proof with you, with an address to be given as a security for the issue of the audio guide. We did not have an ID, so gave Rs 2K cash as refundable security for 2 audio guides. The audio guide is well done. There are no photos allowed inside the palace. Can complete the tour inside in about 1 hour time.

Fairly good palace with collectibles. Even the outer area with cannons & garden is good. However its overpriced and too crowded to even enjoy what's there. So visit on a weekday preferably first half/morning.

Toto, we’re not in Europe anymore! Temper expectations with this Palace visit. The property looks nice on the outside but the inside is pretty run down and not at all like what you would see in a European palace/castle. The entry fee was cheap, I think $5 USD which included the audio guide so the price is more than fair. The outside garden area has some nice arrangements but it’s a dirt path and just doesn’t compare with the opulence I expected when visiting a city PALACE.

For some reason, YOU CANT TAKE PICTURES! Likely because of how run down the place is. If you’re into the history, this might be for you, just weigh the time needed to travel here (local traffic) vs the low visuals you’ll experience.

Please visit this place with reasonable expectation. Entry fees is rs 240 for Indians and rs 480 for foreign national. It includes audio guide. Audio guide gives good information about things displayed. But visitors can only see Darbar Hall, open courtyards, office of late maharaja. Also there are many photos of royal family and old paintings. Everything else is closed. Photography not allowed within palace. But outdoors of palace is good for taking photographs. There is garden from where you can take nice photos. At most it will take 2 hours to visit. There is ample space for parking and it is closed on Monday
