My World- Mysore

One of the most beautiful cities in India is Mysore, with its palaces, lakes and gardens. The gateway to the 100 year old palace has gardens flanking it.
The royal palace, the home of the Wodeyars, who are the descendants of the Maharajas of Mysore , live in this imposing edifice . It is built in the Indo-saracenic style, and houses many things of historic importance.
A marble staue of an earlier Maharaja is placed in this gilded pergola.
Mysore is still very beautiful, but with 200 cars being added per day to the vehicle population of the city, soon it will be as chaotic as Bangalore.
I thank the team of My World for hosting the wonderful meme.
