Comments / picturesThe 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).

The last private owner of Mysore palace was Jayachamaraja Wodeyar Bahadur

The present elephants living in the Palace elephant stables are owned by Pramoda Devi Wadiyar of the Mysore-Wadiyar dynasty.

2021-10-08: Four elephants that belong to the royal family of Mysore will soon be in Gujarat, at the Elephant Rescue Centre in Jamnagar. The four females, in the age Group of 27-44 years, will be sent to Jamnagar after the Dussehra festival. The elephants — Rajeshwari (27), Gemini (31), Seetha (36) and Ruby (44) — are owned by the Mysore-Wadiyar dynasty. The royal family has six elephants, of which four are being sent to the facility in Jamnagar.

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