Mysore - A perfect city

Though we have traveled to many places, some place remains close to our heart. We all used to long for such places badly. Recollecting those memories will be the awesome part which makes us in delight all the times. 

One such city is Mysore. Very often, we will be at that place. 

Most of us will spot the mysore palace whenever we say the name as Mysore. It is very astonishing place. but, this is not the only place in mysore.

Mysore is famous for many things. The list includes Chamundeeswari temple, Mysore palace, Tippu sultan fort, Mysore silks, Mysore sweets. Mysore has one of the best city transportation systems in India

The Kingdom of Mysore was ruled by the Wodeyar dynasty, except for a short period in the late 18th century when Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan were in power. Patrons of art and culture, the Wodeyars contributed significantly to the cultural growth of the city. The cultural ambience and achievements of Mysore earned it the sobriquet Cultural capital of South Karnataka. 

Mysore is noted for its palaces, including the Mysore Palace, and for the festivities that take place during the Dasara festival when the city receives a large number of tourists. It lends its name to the Mysore style of painting, the sweet dish Mysore Pak, the Mysore Peta (a traditional silk turban) and the garment known as the Mysore silk saree. 

Tourism was the major industry there whereas now information technology too has emerged as a major employer alongside the traditional industries. Infosys too has its training campus there.

For the attraction of tourists, we have plenty of unique places there. If we are going to be specific, we can say sand museum and Melody World Wax Museum which is so stunning. 

The museum fascinates visitors through its display of various musical instruments in interesting settings, replete with life size wax statues of musicians playing the musical instruments. Since the museum is based on music and musical instruments, it reflects the diverse kinds of musical instruments that have been in use across various parts of the country and the world since ancient times. This is a one-of-its kind wax museum in the whole world. The museum was established in October 2010 by a Bengaluru based IT professional named Shreeji Bhaskaran. It was created as a tribute to musicians from all over the world.

Mysore Sand Sculpture Museum developed by Ms. Gowri with the help of her family. It is an array of sand sculptures under one roof. A 15-ft high sand statue of a Lord Ganesh welcomes visitors to the museum. 


Other sculptures include Goddess Chamundeshwari, Laughing Buddha, Dasara procession, the late Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar seated on the throne during Dasara, zodiac wheel, a striking work of ‘Gitopadesha’ with Lord Krishna and Arjuna on a horse-drawn chariot, ancient civilization, marine life, Disneyland, Islamic culture, a Christmas tree, Santa Claus and wildlife. This is the permanent museum of sand sculptures, protected from the sun and rain.

The city also has its Krishnarajasagara dam with its attractive Brindavan garden. The dam is across the kaveri river in the city of mysore. 

Finally, this is a city with many attraction, well maintained infrastructure, good transportation, fine design and best connectivity. Overall, Mysore is the perfect city which is so close to my heart.
