Most visited city portal of Mysuru.
Jaganmohan Palace is amongst the oldest ones in Mysore which dates back to 150 odd years. Jaganmohan Palace was used for the coronation of the beloved king Nalvadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar and served as a marriage hall for the king. It was also the place where the first legislative council of Mysore was held. This palace served as a residence to the Royal family when the main palace (Amba Vilas Palace) was caught in an accidental fire.
The architecture depicts a pure Hindu style, it has 3 stories, 3 entrances and Religious motifs and miniature temples. The palace is very famous for the artistic work on the walls and the paintings inside. It has a huge collection of paintings of Ravivarma, one of the most gifted painters the era had seen. It is known for its mural paintings where typical Mysore style painting has been used for depiction. The murals indicate Dasara happening in the city and the colours used for the murals are the vegetable dyes. It also has the mural of the family tree of the Wodeyar family that has ruled Mysore for over 600 years.
It is known to be the largest collection of artefacts in the whole of South India and all these artefacts are historic and of great value. The palace is now converted into an art gallery with a ticketed entry. It was used by the Mysore University for convocations some time ago. Now it is rented out for cultural events happening in Mysore. The museum is open to public for a ticketed entry.
