You just cannot leave out Mysore when talking about beautiful places in India. The city is known for its royal palaces which date back to British times. One of the most important palaces of Mysore is the Mysore Palace. Also called the Amba Vilas Palace, it was originally constructed in the 14th century. However, several reconstructions were ordered in consequent years, the current version dating back to 1897. It is a Rajput style palace with elements of Muslim architecture and an unmistakable grandeur about it.
