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.
