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.

"Good retreat, but quite far from the city" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
If you are tired of the hustle and bustle of the city, and would like to spend a weekend or so, then you may come to Mysore, and visit one of its key attractions- Brindavan Gardens. It's a good respite for people, who long to have a peaceful time in some green escapade. Although, there was a huge crowd of tourists, picnickers etc, still the sprawling gardens, spread out across a huge area, was quite welcoming with its flowers, trees, fountains etc. The light and sound attraction, seemed very overhyped to me- maybe because I had seen much better co-ordinated light and sound sequences at many places across India. Overall, I liked this place, and would recommend a one time visit to this place to the tourists.

"Good place but not maintained well" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Very good place to visit. Best time to reach this place is before 5 pm on weekends, after that you won't get parking. To leave this place 7:15 to 7:30 (Immediately after first fountain show) or else you get struck) Once you enter go to fish garden if you are interested, then once you enter KRS first go to your left hand side and till top of the garden (Towards Brindavan Hotel then from there you come back towards fountain show. Reach near to music fountain show before 06:30. Leave this place by 7:30.

About Maintenance: It's very very poorly maintained. No proper watering for garden. Some lights of the musical fountain are not working properly. Very poor maintenance.

A beautiful place to be at, personally suggest every traveller to visit this place. The junk food here is good, but if you are looking for something filling you will be disappointed.

"Good, but not as expected"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Good, but not as expected. Lacks maintenance, so lesser no of lights in the garden. Vendors were all selling their products - like ground nuts, chips, which resulted in garbage. If maintained well, this will be the best attraction. Musical fountain was good, but still needed proper sync with the music for better effect.

The Brindavan Garden is a very beautiful garden of its kind. A lavish green area to spend your evening. A variety of flora and fauna found here. It has the famous musical mountain to see and enjoy. A very pleasant experience to be in a must visit palace. A big Lake also to enjoy.
