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.

"Main attraction at evening" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
Who can forget the great Sir. M. Vishweshwariah, who built the reservoir which is a lifeline of Karnataka. And the Brindavan garden, which has a huge varieties of plants & shrubs. The main attraction is the musical fountains, thats in the evening.

"The Magical Musical Garden" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
If you crazy for flowers this is the place you will spend all day. Even a day won't be enough. Nature lovers will find peace here, the best time is actually during evening when the fountains light up n musical too. Beware of Thugs who say the will click pictures of you with pleasant gesture, but they will ask money after doing so. You will find eatables inside the garden near the entry area as well as outside. There is ample car parking space so not to worry.

It was much better when I visited 30 years back, the fountains were not functioning properly. So many hawkers were pestering us. It was a very big disappointment.

We could feel free and happy to walk around the gardens. Felt like walking in paradise. Night was wonderful as the fountains were lit up, best time to visit is in the evening. Oh and hordes and hordes of tourists. Shows its popularity.

"Cinematic location"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
This is a wonderful place next to the KRS dam one of the oldest dam in karnataka and the place is actually well suited for the movie songs. There will always be one or the other shootings going on in this place. One should not miss the water dance show which is there daily in the evening times.

"Attraction to visit"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Water, fountains, flowers all over. Lot of walking stretches. Situated beside the Krishnarajasagar dam. Lots of eateries in the vicinity. Good toilet facility and systematic parking availability. Better to go in the evening and continue till darkness to see the colorful fountains, however the musical fountain show seems too ordinary. Must visit attraction.
