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.

"Maintenance is poor, still music fountain is good" new review

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Poor maintenance, it's losing its attraction, otherwise it is one of the best gardens in India. Especially music fountain is old still performs good, be caution with cameras as the risk of slipping into water is high.

"Garden of beauty" new review

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Brindavan garden is also called as KRS dam. It is about 18 km from Mysore City bus stand. We can get a local bus from Mysore to this place. This garden is well maintained with great variety of flowers. Musical fountain is also seen here from 6 pm on wards. Varieties of water fountains are seen. Boating facility is available. Several food stalls are here. I advise travellers to go to this place for watching the natural beauty of flowers.
