Nice place to visit. You can visit this place at any season. It opens from 10 A. M. To 5:30 P. You can visit this place with your family, friend, f, wife etc ., Very peaceful environment, near by garden and park is also more attractive for visitors to take cool photos and enjoy by seeing the beautiful flowers.

"An encapsulation of awesome design and magnificence, The Majestic Bangalore Palace saves in its the"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It is a wonderful place located in the midst of the busy city. It is located near kaveri theater, in Vasanthnagar, palace road. The architecture is wonderful. And yes, there is an entry fee and some other charges (mentioned in the end).
In the event that you want to visit notable places and might want to think about the illustrious Wodeyar family then you should visit this place. The learning that the individuals from this Royal family still dwells in one area of this royal residence would truly astound us. While some of them are inhabiting the famous Mysore castle as well. The most noteworthy fascination of this royal residence is that despite everything it stays with all its grandeour and quality. You needn't bother with the assistance of any guide inside this royal residence since they offer you sound aides in various Indian dialects. At whatever point you wish you may play the sound manual for comprehend the subtle elements of that specific place inside the royal residence. The sound guide is quite recently brilliant and you would simply love to hear it. You atleast require 3-4 hours or sometimes more if you are a keen observer and if you keep Reading everything and studying the pictures and designs carefully. The royal residence shows a wonderful and very much embellished Ball room where once an upon a period the Rajas used to appreciate. The mind blowing Durbar corridor is truly eye infectious. You will get the opportunity to see photographs of various heredity of Rajas and Ranis of this administration and go out for a stroll through the expansive stairways of this royal residence. The women patio with delightful wellsprings and seats are recently astonishing to watch. The historical center exhibits diverse things once utilized by various individuals from the Royal Family. You would see mummified structures of Elephant head and Tiger paws which these Rajas had once chased and caught. History talks at each alcove and corner of this palace. Outside the castle there is a gigantic corridor which could be leased by regular people to have any capacity or get-together. When I went by this place a wedding gathering was going to start there. There is additionally a very much kept up plant directly before this royal residence. This has a children play range and could likewise be utilized as a resting place for everyone. Just make sure to convey a unique ID verification of the considerable number of individuals going by the Palace with you since you should submit them at the gathering to get your sound guide. Your ID verification is utilized as a security evidence and will be returned back to you once you restore the sound guide gadget back to the castle specialists. On the off chance that you don't convey any ID confirmation then you should present your telephone there as a security store. It can be a best excursion spot with family and children. It is fun and well as proficient for the children and individuals of all age gatherings.
It is kept up exceptionally slick and clean. The staff are likewise agreeable. I would propose everyone going to Bangalore, visit the Bangalore royal residence. You would have a decent day.
Here's I mentioned the Entry fees and other charges in Bangalore Palace.
? 230 per person for Indians
? 460 per person for Foreign Tourists
? 685 for Still Camera
? 285 for Mobile Camera
? 1485 for Video Camera
If you have some extra time, I suggest you to also make a visit to Vidhan Soudha, it happens to be one of the one of the largest legislative buildings and is a must-see tourist attraction in Bangalore. Only have a distance of 2. 9 KM from Bangalore Palace. Don't forget to enjoy the delicious south Indian Thali.

"A day well spent"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jul 13, 2017
I went there with a friend to see the summer house of the Mysore king.

To reach here is easy. Take an uber since it is in the heart of the city. Even if you do not want you need to buy an audio tour of 250 rs to this palace.

The beautiful corridors, Pictures of kings and generations.

Overall a good day spent there.

"Good place to soak up some history"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Mar 15, 2017
We opted for the regular ticket (INR 230 for Indians, INR 460 for foreigners) which included the audio guide, but prohibited the use of cameras. There are numbers on little placards placed near points of interest, that correspond to the chapters on the audio guide. I've always loved history, so I liked listening to the guide while walking around the palace. The architecture is good.

It's a place for history buffs like me, but those who are not very keen may find the experience boring.

"Bangalore palace"

  • 3.0/7
  • Posted Oct 31, 2016
Myself and family were been to Bangalore palace today. Altogether it was just an average place.
The palace as such is beautifully architects resembling Windsor palace in Europe. But info it's very poorly maintained. Entrance fee of Rs. 230 was being charged. The whole corridor, steps everything is so dusty and not properly cleaned. Most of the rooms are locked.
It would surely be a place of interest if the concerned staff are well maintaining it.

"Nice facade but nothing much inside"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Jun 2, 2016
The facade is beautiful but as you enter it is not very interesting as there is not much to see. Can avoid going here. The palace is in the middle of large grounds but cars go right up to the entry gates so not a problem taking a cab here.
