Wider than normal (in India) streets, a big western yoga population, a spectacular temple and a scented, chaotic market are the cliffs notes to Mysore.

Mysore is the epicenter of Ashtanga yoga, one of the forms that became extremely popular in the West. If you want to go back to the source, and learn to do a back bend in the process, a trip to Mysore is a must.Recommended for:Spiritual Seekers

Mysore, Karnataka is about as exotic as it gets. Where else could you possiblly expect to see a ship of the desert (that's a camel to you and me) strolling along a tree lined avenue for maharajas and dignitaries? If petting zoos can't hold your attention for long, go for some human pretzeling with some of the best yoga yogis on the subcontinent. Once you've limbered up and gawked out on the camels, slide into Mysore Palace to kick it with the resident pod of packiderms and come sundown, the thousands twinkiling lights of the palace go up just as the mouths of the hundreds of nightly spectators drop.

Its a city of palaces,temples and the signature sandalwood. Ive never visited so many palaces and temples in 1 day as i have done in Mysore. And "sandalwood" seems to be every where! Be sure to have an overview of Mysore that the tour guides would insist on you to see.... its beautiful!!! also don't miss out on the 'jungle zoo', where u have to take a go cart to get around!! adding yet again, the palaces there are worth a look.. it almost took me back to my high school history books.Seeing them there in person it felt unreal.

The royal city of Mysore has tons of places to visit both inside the city and nearby. The royal palace is a must see especially when it is illuminated (usually Sunday evening). Mysore boasts of a host of palaces and great restaurants. Nearby places include Talkad (a desert arising out of a curse to the royal family), KRS dam, historical town of Srirangapatna, Bandipur forest reserve and many others. Although slightly lacking in nightlife, this city more than makes it up with the sheer number of places you can visit.
