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.

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 3 days ago
One of the most beautiful garden in Mysore. It is located near to kaveri dam. The garden is well decorated with light and water fountain. They will provide you boat ride. Park is so big. One site of the park you will get musical water fountain show. Cold Drink are available as much as you want. So many tourist buses you will found there.

"The maintenance is poor" new review

  • 1.00/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
There are not more than 8 toilet bowls for the entire Brindavan Garden which can host around 5000 people at a time. So, you have to pay and wait in a queue for 30 mins before you empty your tank. If you travel with kids, you are screwed. Maintenance is terribly poor inside the garden.

"Beauty at its best"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
The garden is one of its kind. The flowers, trees and all the greenery around makes this place a heaven. Not visiting this place while you are in Mysore is a sin. The boat riding on this garden and the fountain show are the attractions you can't afford to miss. Full of fragrance, the garden is one of the best in India.

"Awesome place and kids will enjoy"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
The Garden is very nice, would advise to go there post 4:00 PM so that you can roam around till Sunset & then enjoy the musical fountains. Take a boat ride it's just for 20 rs, the kids will love the garden with carpet grass.
