The palace was built in 1921 at the orders of His Highness Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, the Maharaja of Mysore for the exclusive stay of the then Viceroy of India.
The elegant palace is painted pure white. It was converted into a Heritage Hotel in 1974.
It is now run as an elite hotel of the Ashok Group of India Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC) under the Government of India. However, a veneer of the original royal ambience of the palace is maintained.
Visit The Palace sometime for a taste of the royal heritage of The Maharajahs of Mysore.
