    Hi Andrew,

    Is the Mysore Palace open for visitors? If so, when is the best time to visit?

    Yes, Mysore Palace is open for visitors everyday from 10am to 5.30 pm. You can visit the palace building, museum and more. If you need a guide, then you can hire anyone on the entrance of the palace or hire an audio tour gadget. Winter, that is from October to February is the most pleasant season, and also the Dasara festival season is also the best time to visit this palace.
