Over time, the palace has undergone several renovations to maintain its structure. A perfect example of the Indo-Saracenic architecture, which showcases the Islamic, Rajput, Hindu, and Gothic styles, you can also take a tour inside the palace to understand the palace and enrich yourself with a quick history lesson. 

Chamundi Hills 

Locally known as Chamundi Betta, it is mainly popular for the Chamundi Temple that’s located amidst the hills. The temple is of great historic and mythological significance and thousands of people visit the temple to take the blessings of Goddess Chamundi. The people of Mysore believe that the Goddess watches over them from the mountain. This is definitely one of the Mysore places to visit in one day. 

Brindavan Gardens 

As a part of your Mysore One Day Tour, make sure you visit the Brindavan Gardens later in the evening for a magical time. Located near the KRS Dam, you can include the Brindavan Gardens in your Mysore sightseeing package along with a trip to the 

dam. In the evening, the garden is lit up where you can enjoy a musical fountain show. These gardens are inspired by the Shalimar Gardens of Kashmir and are spread over 60 acres. Known to be one of the most popular terrace gardens of India, don’t

miss visiting the Brindavan Gardens on your Mysore one-day tour package. Railway Museum 

Located in the heart of the city, the Railway Museum is a wonderful tourist attraction that you can include in your Mysore One-Day Tour. This lovely museum opened its doors to the public in the year 1979 and walks us through the evolution of the Indian Railways. Tourists usually make it a part of their Mysore sightseeing package as it’s one of its kind and truly makes you go ‘wow.’ 

GRS Fantasy Park 

GRS Fantasy Park was one of the very first adventure parks in Mysore that offered a plethora of exciting rides and entertainment. Right from carrying all the safety measures, GRS offers a host of options for both young children and adults. From rock climbing to water activities to thrill rides, you can include this amusement part in your Mysore One Day Trip

KRS Dam 

One of the most popular dams in South India has to be the Krishna Raja Sagar Dam, which is locally known as the KRS Dam. The best time to visit the dam is between June to August as the water flow is abundant. However, make sure you always check if the dam is open before you make it a part of your Mysore one day trip plan as the dam remains closed for tourists if the level rises beyond a certain point. 

Mysuru Sand Sculpture Museum 

Located on Chamundi Hill road, this is a private museum that depicts sand sculptures. Their major attraction is definitely the 15-feet tall Ganesha. They also showcase their art in 16 themes, which includes the Mysore Dasara procession, Disneyland, and more. This one-of-a-kind museum is a must-visit on your Mysore on a day trip. 

Karanji Lake 

If you are planning to visit the Chamundi Hills, make sure you visit Karanji Lake too that sits on its foothills. The serene lake is beautiful and offers you a quiet peaceful moment for yourself. Constructed as a percolation tank by the Mysore Maharaja, the lake is surrounded by lush greenery making it one of the places to visit in Mysore in one day. 

Jaganmohan Palace Art Gallery and Auditorium

While the art gallery is known for some of its gems, the entire building is a work of art. Constructed in 1861, it was the residence of Krishnaraja Wodeyar III from 1897 – 1912 after a fire incident that took place in the main palace. It is one of the best art galleries in South India and must be a part of your Mysore one day sightseeing trip

St. Philomena’s Cathedral 

Previously known as St Joseph Chavez, the cathedral was built in 1840 by the Mysore Maharaja for all the Europeans who were residing in the city. The majestic building is also an architectural landmark and holds religious significance. Also, it is the second-largest church in Asia that can hold up to 800 people in its main hall. So, make sure you visit the cathedral on your Mysore one day sightseeing trip

Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens 

The Mysore zoo is one of the oldest in our country and was established in 1892. Today, this place also serves as an educational centre for the conservation of wildlife and you will meet some interesting animals here. The zoo also offers a diverse range of flora and fauna that will surely make your day. 

Pro Tip: If you start your Mysore one day sightseeing early in the day, you also visit Srirangapatna and experience its rich history en route to Mysore. And, don’t forget to indulge in some fluffy idlis and Mysore Paak.

From the time of booking (tempo traveller), we were kept informed on the details promptly and driver number was sent the before the travel. Driver Raju asked me to share the Google map for destination places wherever we wanted to visit. Also he proactively called the resorts and asked for clear routes. We had no issues in dealing with routes. Also driver gave valuable suggestions whenever we asked for, we had to travel 10-12 kms for good vegetarian restaurant from our resort but driver arranged some good food from nearby village within a kilometre using his contact. There were all value added service and he refused to charge anything extra from us. One unexpected disappointment was there was no TV in the vehicle which I asked for but it's was a communication gap between travels and driver. Overall we had a wonderful trip with fox travels and driver Raju.
