Mysore Palace
Mysore Palace A mishmash of architectural styles, the Mysore Palace resembles, in roughly equal proportions, everything from a medieval Mughal mausoleum to an opulent French chateau- and almost any form of magnificent building in between. Uninhibited grandeur is the buzzword in the Mysore Palace- and it has to be seen to be believed. The site where today’s Mysore Palace, also known as Amba Vilas Palace, stands was once the site for an earlier wooden palace, which burnt down in a fire during 1897. However its construction was completed in the year 1912. For those with a penchant for the sumptuous, this proved to be a stroke of luck- for the building that was constructed in its stead was one which goes the whole hog when it comes t...

Culture and Dance of Tamil Nadu There is more to Tamil culture than its trove of temple richness. This is a land of poetry, song and dance.

The Sangam period around 2AD was the high point in Tamilian literature. The poet Thiruvalluvar wrote thousands of poetic pieces in his work ‘Thirukkal’, and inspired the ‘Sangam Academy’ for poets and other writers.

Language of Tamil Nadu
