The palace complex includes twelve Hindu temples. The oldest of these was built in the 14th century, while the most recent was built in 1953.

The Palace of Mysore is a palace situated in the city of Mysore, southern India. It was the official residence of the former royal family of Mysore, and also housed the durbar (ceremonial meeting hall of the royal court).

Mysore has a number of historic palaces, and is commonly described as the City of Palaces. However, the term "Palace of Mysore" specifically refers to one of these palaces, Amba Vilas.

The palace was commissioned in 1897, and its construction was completed in 1912.
It is now one of the most famous tourist attractions in Mysore.


The last private owner of Mysore palace was Jayachamaraja Wodeyar Bahadur
