Bandipur to Mysore

Continuing on my vacation in India, from the serene Bandipur forest lodge, we moved on to Mysore for 3 days. We visited sooo many places in this wonderful city that I am just going to pick the pictures that I loved the best from every place.

Nanjundeshwar temple

Brindavan Gardens

Chamundeshwari temple

Nandi: the bull

The Mysore zoo: two of my favorite animals :)

Mysore Palace: one of the most famous tourist spots

St Philomena's Church

Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary

Tipu Sultan, one of south India's famous and powerful emperors; his summer palace

Gumbaz, the tomb of Tipu Sultan

Sangama - meeting of 3 rivers: Kapila, Kabini & Kaveri

The city had such variety to offer in terms of food, places to visit, shopping, and what is best is that the cost of living here is much lesser than the metropolitan cities. Mysore, a good trip.

Mysore palace !
My fav as i have already mentioned before on this blog ;) Specially king's bedroom ;) :)

btw one secret to share, when we visited Brindavan Garden, it was evening and it started getting a bit dark. But it was so beatiful, all the fountains and all. we cicked photos with lots of poses n all in front of fountains and Those were the days we hadn't had digital cam.
When we got prints of those pics, there were only we posing, with a dark break ground, no colourful fountains ;o)

Learnt very imp photography lesson that day...hehe
