Brindavan Gardens is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Mysore frequented by tourists throughout the year. Brindavan Gardens was once called as Krishnarajendra Terrace Garden.  

Brindavan Gardens is situated towards the north west of Mysore, at a distance of about 20 km from the city. It is located below the Krishnaraja Sagar Dam, which is popularly known by the name KRS. Krishnaraja Sagar Dam or Kannambadi, which was named after Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, was constructed during 1924 – 1932 by Sir M. Vishveswariah.

Brindavan Gardens is spread over sixty acres. The Shalimar Gardens of Kashmir was the model for Brindavan Gardens. Brindavan Gardens has beautiful lawns, flower beds, shrubs, trees and numerous pools and fountains.

There is a pond in the middle of the gardens, where tourists often go for a boat ride around the statue of Goddess Cauvery. Brindavan Gardens becomes a major attraction during the evenings when the whole garden is lit up with colourful fountains.

The Brindavan Gardens are illuminated from 7.00 pm to 7.55 pm from Monday to Friday and from 7.00 pm to 8.55 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Tourists flock at the gallery to catch a glimpse of the musical and dancing fountain which is located on the northern part of Brindavan Gardens.

Things change over time and in Brindavan Garden case, it happened the same. No maintenance of the garden, piles of garbage can be seen everywhere. Water fountain stinks, only attraction is the bridge.

"Best place to spend the day"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Best place to spend the entire day. The garden at the foot of the dam is amazingly made and is beautiful. Normally the tour operator brings you here in the evening for light show, but I would suggest to visit during day time as its beauty cannot be enjoyed during night.

"Not good as before"

Famous Brindavan Garden is now left only with its skeleton. The songs are too old and the place is a callous one. The lack of proper illumination just help the bag-lifters and pickpockets. The guards are too much casual in their approach as if they are only to see the visitors, not to help them. We thought that we made our biggest mistake by visiting the place.

I like this place. While visiting this place we will not feel any tired even in the hot climate too. Best place to visit with family. Each and every time I feel like I am new to this place as I visited the place more than 10 times. The main attraction of the place is the beauty of the garden.
