The Lalitha Mahal

January 13, 2010

Ive always known about the Taj Mahal. I’ve always about its history and its captivating beauty. However, I only learned about the Lalitha Mahal today.

The Lalitha Mahal is the second largest palace in Mysore. It is located near the Chamundi Hills, east of the city of Mysore in the Indian state of Karnataka. The Maharaja of Mysore, Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV ordered this palace to be built for the exlusive stay of the then Viceroy of India. The palace was fashioned on the lines of the St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.

Today, it is now run as an elite hotel of the Ashok Group of the India Tourism Development Corporations, still unde rthe Government of India. I am attaching a picture on this blog entry, so you may also see what the palace looks like.

  1. Wow that’s beautiful! The more I hear about these foreign places, the more upset I become that I’m not fortunate enough to travel… 😦

    Thanks for the post–I love reading about various historic sites around the globe!

    • Me too. I wish I had the luxury to travel all the best places in the world… Unfortunately, I just have to content myself with reading about them… 🙂
