Karnataka's third largest city is Mysore, or Mysuru. The city was ruled by the Wodeyar dynasty and it is well known for its rich architectural heritage, palaces, and beautiful gardens. It is located at the bottom of the Chamundi Hills and it is approximately 150 km from Bangalore. There is a major tourism industry in the city that attracts tourists from all over the world. The town is popular with palaces, the delicious Pak, and the Dashara festival in the city. It is one of the most frequently visited destinations in Karnataka.
The name Mysuru originates from Mahishasura, who was a demon capable of taking the form of a human being and a buffalo. It is believed that this area was ruled by the demon Mahishasura, slain by the goddess Chamundeshwari, whose temple overlooks the hills. This is how the town of Mysore was named.

The neighbourhoods of Bangalore are mostly quiet and serene, apart from the central business and commercial districts (and the roads leading up to them), particularly the older parts of the city, such as Jayanagar and J.P Nagar.
This luxury mall is the one-stop destination for all your high-end brand requirements, situated in the CBD ( Central Business District) in Bangalore. It is distributed over a mind-boggling area of 13 acres, assimilating the four towers as a whole. Whether it's shopping at a high-end supermarket, ultra-fine dining, or even enjoying a massage after a hard day of work, this place has it all.
The place is home to all the elegance of luxury, accessories, jewellery, bags and fashion brands from around the world, including, to name a few, Louis Vuitton, Estee Lauder, Rolex, Burberry, Jimmy Choo and Canali. For all tourists to experience the best of everything, various activities are often arranged in a timely manner.
