Although Mysore is commonly described as the 'City of Palaces' the Ambavilas Palace stands out from everything else.
Preparations for the weeks long trip away from home :P
Dariya Daulat Palace, was built by the famous Mysorean ruler Tipu Sultan
Chamundeshwari Temple atop Chamundi Hills
As it turns out, the Mysore palace is the second most visited after the Taj
New home ? :P
First (Dirt) Quad Bike Experience
Abbey Falls amidst the coffee plantations - one of the most serene waterfalls I have visited
And here beings the tour of the coffee estates
Nascent stages of coffee - the berries and the flowers
Here is how the unprocessed coffee beans look - surprised to see the lack of color?
The beans are then processed and dried to give them the color
Life size chess - it has always been a dream.
Dubare, on the banks of the River Kaveri is a famous Elephant camp ...
... where you get scrub and help these giants bathe :P along amongst other activities.
Namdroling Nyingmapa Monastery, also called the Golden Temple, is the largest teaching center of the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism in the world. The pic features the Zangdog Palri Temple. Mesmerized by the colors, grandeur and architecture.
Laid out on 3 terraces the Brindavan Gardens have been the shooting location of multiple 20th century bollywood flicks.
The gardens lie near the Krishnarajasagara dam which is built on the river Kaveri.
