Mysore Palace, also known as Amba Vilas, is the the official residence of the Wadiyar dynasty who ruled the Kingdom of Mysore from 1399 to 1950. The original palace built of wood, got burnt down in 1897, during the wedding of Jayalakshammanni, the eldest daughter of Chamaraja Wodeyar and was rebuilt in 1912. The strikingly embellished and finely chiselled doors lead one to richly and elegantly ornate rooms. The exquisitely columned Durbar Hall, the solid silver doors, the finely incised mahogany ceilings and many other embellishments of the palace make one spellbound while giving an idea of the exuberant lifestyle of the royals.
The palace remains illuminated during 10 days of the renowned Mysore Dasara festival with around 100,000 light bulbs from 7 pm to 10 pm. During the festival the Chinnada Simhasana or Ratna Simahasana that is the royal throne decorated with fascinating designs on its gold plates is displayed.
