The palace grounds are a popular venue for rock concerts and other music events.

A small palace with relatively expensive tickets. What makes up for it is that you are provided with audio guides. It doesn't feel like any other palace in India. In fact it doesn't feel like palace too just a lavish Scottish bungalow.

There is not a lot to see in Bangalore when it comes to tourist sites, but the Palace is worth a trip if you have time. That said, if you have seen a lot of castles in Europe or other parts of the world prepare to be underwhelmed. The highlight is the recorded tour that gives you some interesting history... More

Nice place, well maintained and clean premises However i felt its more of a modern day bungalow without any touch of history. No match for the Mysore palace

If you can get an entry into the palace it is interesting. The outside looks are great. It is like any other palace but not comparable to palaces at Mysore & Jaipur.
