Mysore which sings of its beautiful and legendary tales, ideal cultural ambiance, its culinary delights and, the great legacies is a city located southwest to the capital city; Bangalore, sprawled across 152 square kilometers. It lends its name to varied sources thus increasing its brand value and imbibing the spirit of tourism amongst all. Some of which are; Mysore Pak (a sweet), Mysore Sandal Soap, Mysore Silk Sarees, Mysore Peta (a traditional silk turban) and Mysore Painting.
Mysore is actually an anglicized name of Mahishuru, a fabled demon who exists in the Hindu Vedic arts as a buffalo demon who takes forms as both human and buffalo. This demon was killed by Goddess Chamundeshwari and hence atop the Chamundi hill is a temple dedicated to this deity. Later, with various evolutions and with invasions of the British, the name was transformed to Mysore (as in the Vernacular language). This land with such a vivid tale holds spectacular locations to sight-see that are just going to blow your soul off, to start with;
Mysore Zoo, formerly called Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens is one of the most- popular and oldest zoos of this place that was constructed in the year 1892 under the royal patronage. It is a home to a wide range of wild species making it lively for the kids to cherish their journey. Generally, one can see flocks of tourists thronging to this cultural city during Dussehra- as the ten-day festival will be celebrated with a great vibe in the Mysore Palace. You should not miss it.
Blue Lagoon is yet another tourist attraction that beholds the eyes of many. This is actually a small lake constructed behind the dam that gives a picturesque spot for viewing sunset and sunrise. Midst this remains a mini island that altogether adds charm to this place. If you are a history lover and wish to see the evolution from Stone Age to the modern world, then you should visit this Wax Museum that portrays over 100 life-sized statues and musical instruments. This museum was established in the year 2010.
