Most visited city portal of Mysuru.
Mysore Road. So where is Mysore road? Well, if you think so, you are in for a surprise. Yes. You may know Mysore road in Bengalooru which connects our capital to our Heritage City. And because of the name, you may even suppose that there is a Mysore road in Mysore itself.
But you may be excited to know that there are many roads and streets across the world in different continents, that are named after our Mysore!! To name a few, there’s one in UK, one in New Zealand and 3 in South Africa. Still don’t believe it? Google it on Google Maps. Type mysore road in Google Map’s search field and wait for the site to provide you with suggestions. You’ll then believe your eyes.
I was taken aback when one of my friends told me about this the other day when we were having a chat on GTalk. I did a search right away and ended up with the above page in my browser.
After this, I couldn’t resist it. I started to look out for other places on the Earth where I can find a Mysore Road or Mysore Street. But it was in vain. I could find only the above results. But when I was searching, I came to know that Mysore Rd in Greater London is a pretty popular street and attracts tourists. What can I say to this? The name, ‘Mysore’, has that power to attract it seems.
Even in New Zealand, its a beautiful street.
In South Africa..
And in Namma Bengalooru..
I kind of felt proud when I got to know all this. This is yet another reason to be proud to be a Mysorean. How many of you knew this? If you have any other info about these streets, or any other Mysore Road, please share with us in the comments area.
