Five Photos- Five Stories- Mysore Palace

During one of our vacation in India few years back we visited Mysore city for a day. The trip would not be complete without visiting the Mysore Palace. It is one of the largest and most spectacular monuments in the country. The palace itself is a three-storey stone structure which has a series of square towers with arches covered with domes. There is also a large open space in front and the palace is surrounded by a large garden.

The palace is now converted into a museum that is home to souvenirs, paintings, jewellery, royal costumes and other items which were once possessed by the formal royal family. We had a knowledgeable  afternoon knowing more about the history of the palace before we left for our next destination.

My thank you to Priceless Joy for nominating me to this special Five Photos Five Stories challenge. I am to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story, either fiction or non-fiction, or a short paragraph, to the photo each day. Next I am to select one person (each day), to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely upto the person nominated, and is not mandatory.

Today I would like to nominate author of the blog Story Teller, to participate in this challenge.

  1. Interesting challenge, where is the story… I have loads of stories with Mysuru Palace… it was a movement when I felt I was totally complete… last to last year came to Mysore for a function and no one was there to take me out, I came with parents but they are not the siteseeing type):… but I ventured out myself without knowning anything and got lost and followed by some guy and returned to hotle. My Dad said he was going to walk so I can join him and we walked to Mysuru Palace…5:30pm was the last time, we went on 6:00pm but my dad talked his way through and surprises we stayed to check out the Mysuru Palace illumination… it was a gift for me that day absolutely…watching the Palace slowly light when it gets dark… I felt like the luckiest person on earth…anyway… nice!!
