My World- Heritage Buildings of Mysore

Mysore is a city of culture. Many of its buildings and streets are named after Englishmen who served in the princely state befor Independence. The Gordon House is one of the heritage buildings of Mysore. It houses the offices of the District Administration.
The statue of Sir James Gordon, an Englishman, who was the guardian of the young Maharaja in 1767, stands in front of the building, looking on a rose garden. The rose plants were all pruned and fertilized last week, so that they would be in full flower in January.

The Crawford Hall, another heritage building, houses the offices of the University of Mysore. There is a freize of Saraswati, the goddess of Learning, on top of the building. The beds surrounding the lawn wer planted with seedlings of annuals now.
