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.

"Cinematic location" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks 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" new review

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 3 weeks 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.

"An awesome experience" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Brindavan garden in Mysore is one must visit place if there is a tour plan to Mysore. The beautiful garden arranged in layers is one awesome visual treat for anyone. The fountains make it more beautiful. The dam separates North and South gardens and the boating through dam is also a good experience. Preferably visit here by 7.00 night to have the view of dancing fountains in the background of the beautiful garden.

"Colorful big garden" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
The garden is slightly far away from main town but is a wonderful place to visit. The adjoining river dam is an epitome of engineering science coupled with floral beauty. A perfect place for leisure, picnic. The evening fountain light show draws large number of crowds from across the nation.

Great garden to visit during sunset or sunrise. Do not go in day as it is too hot to enjoy the flora and fauna of the garden otherwise a very good place to visit in the evening.

True to its name as Mysore has always been recognised for Brindavan gardens. Crowded but maintains cleanliness and charm. Light show now can be enjoyed at various other places also.
