Beautifully designed square towers are situated at the cardinal point and are covered with domes. The ornate ceiling and sculpted pillars of Durbar Hall along with the Kalyana Mantapa (marriage pavillion) which has glazed tiled flooring, stained glass and domed ceiling are undoubtedly the charm of this royal heritage. The golden howdah (elephant seat) along with intricately carved doors and fabulous paintings are among few other treasures of the Mysore Palace. The Residential Museum within the Mysore Palace incorporates some of the living quarters, temples and shrines including the Shweta Varahaswamy temple.

The jewel encrusted golden throne is on display during special occasions like the festival of Dasara. On Sundays, public holidays and during Dasara Celebrations, the palace is illuminated with more than 90,000 electric bulbs. The bulbs are lightened in the evening from 1900 Hrs to 2000 Hrs. A virtual tour of the Mysore Palace can be taken at the official Mysore tourism website.
