Mysore Palace guarded by the Big Cats

Mysore palace is now one of the most famous tourist spot attracting more than 2.7 million visitors in the recent years. This Indo-sarsenic style Palace reflects Muslim architecture on the outside, while the interior is a fine example of Hindu architecture. The palace is in its full grandeur in the night, as it is lit with thousands of bulbs and it becomes the most attractive monument in the city. Even without the thousands of light bulbs, it is a sight to watch when it is back lit with flash lights. The below was shot at one such occasion. I really like the way the Big cats came out as silhouette on the back lit palace.

The part I did not like about the place is – though tourists are allowed to visit, they are not allowed to photograph inside the palace, what crap :( Wish they make it photographer friendly, so that the grandeur can be shared with you, who are not able to make it to the palace in person.

On the processing, the HDR accentuated the intricate work on the palace walls (worth checking out on the larger size), highlight part of inner chambers , garden and the walkway.

  1. Grand! Your camera has indeed managed to capture quite a lot of details from the outside. Nice job……….as always.

  2. I agree with you! I’m not sure why some places don’t let you photograph. I can’t think of any reasons…. Can you?

    • Yeah, sometimes it is ridiculous the kind of reason u hear ! The best I have heard was someone might accidentally trip on it and would sue the property owner for the same :)

  3. Great Capture, I did visit this place when I was young.
