Mysore is an important historical city in Karnataka. It is over 150 km away from Bangalore. As I studied in Bangalore, I have visited Mysore city many times since my college years.

It is a lovely city with a lot of special vibes. Even, the name of this city is enough for me to dive into the ocean of moments and memories.

Mysore Palace– #1 Among Places To Visit In Mysore In One Day

Mysore Palace is the most visited place in this city. If you visit Mysore & you haven’t planned for the palace, then you have seen nothing in Mysore. It is only 2 km away from the Mysore Railway Station and 11 km from Mysore Airport.

It is constructed by combining Hindu, Islamic, Rajput, and Gothic architectural styles, and is surrounded by a beautiful garden filled with many flowers and various plants. This Maharaja palace is also one of the best places to visit in Mysore.

Start your Mysore trip after having breakfast of your choice and start moving towards the Mysore palace to witness the historical heritage. 

My one more suggestion would be, you should visit the Mysore Zoo before visiting the palace. The zoo opens at around 8.30 am

You can witness the historical things and some equipment used by Maharajas inside the palace and if you are interested in historical things, then you will definitely love to roam and explore the Mysore Palace.

Chamundi Hills

Chamundi Hills is one of the most famous places to visit in Mysore. There is a temple named ‘Chamundeshwari Temple’. As Chamundi Hills is well known for its Chamundeshwari Temple, it has two more temples dedicated to Lakshmi Narayana Swamy and Mahabaleswara as well.

There is a feeling of calmness and peace when you visit this temple. Since the temple is located on a hilltop, the views when climbing the hill or descending are stunning.

It is quite scenic, and you can either get direct entry or go through the queue. We visited on Friday and it was quite busy because it is considered a very auspicious day here. This is one of the best places to visit in Mysore in one day.

In addition to its historical significance, this temple has always a long queue of devotees, an excellent parking lot also can be seen, there is a small market on the way to the Chamundeshwari Temple, a magnificent view of Mysore is the best thing to witness from here, and this temple has a very fascinating architecture.

As these two places are far away from the city, and if you want to skip one of these two tourist attractions, then I have another place suggestion for you that is located between the main city and the Chamundi Hills road.

If you love to take photos with wax statues of famous personalities, then this place can make you feel amazing. This also has a horror house to create an eerie vibe through its show. There are additional outdoor activities like ATV rides, paintball shooting, zorbing are also famous among visitors.

Where To Stay In Mysore For One Day Trip?

On short trips, the hotel doesn’t need to be perfect as per my thought. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that I am suggesting you stay in a hotel where bedbugs will welcome you at night. I am picking two hotels from my personal experience that are wonderful according to their price tags. 

If you have a good budget to spend on a hotel, then Ginger Hotel, Mysore is the best in class. The price seems in the range. This hotel is only 3 km from the Railway Station. It is located in the heart of Mysore city. 

📍Location Of Ginger Hotel, Mysore

If you don’t want to spend much on hotel rooms on your one-day trip to Mysore, then Hotel Shastri Paradise would be the best suggestion. It is only 2 km from the Railway station and the tourist places 

are much closer to this hotel. Shastri Paradise Hotel is just opposite of KSRTC Bus Stand.

📍Location Of Hotel Shastri Paradise

There are a lot of places here to explore, that cannot be visited in one day trip to Mysore. These places are the most popular that people visit without any second thought. Anyway, take some more time for at least 2-3 days and visit Mysore to explore all the beautiful and hidden gem spots. All the best for your trip. Sayonara.
