It is difficult for any tourist or a resident of Mysore not to be awed by the splendour and majesty of the historic Ambavilas Palace.

The beauty of this symbol of heritage is multiplied when darkness falls and it is lit gloriously by thousands of bulbs. However, plans are being proposed to increase the beauty of the Palace by introducing progressive lighting, as against the static lighting seen today.

According to deputy director of Mysore Palace Board, T S Subramanya, the proposed system of lighting will not only make the whole illumination more beautiful, it will also help significantly in savings on energy and bulb maintenance.

The proposal, which was demonstrated to district incharge Minister, V Sreenivas Prasad, recently, has now been forwarded to the State government. Though tourists and visitors will not be able to enjoy the new lighting system this Dasara, authorities are hopeful that it will be implemented soon. According to a presentation by Seshagiri, CEO of Techbyte India Pvt Ltd, who along with few other technicians developed the new system. Under the dimmer system, savings on power costs can be cut down by 25 per cent.

The new system will also ensure that the life of electrical instruments required for lighting the Palace will also increase significantly, due to controlled loading of electricity.

A former scientist at the Indian Institute of Science, Ananthapadmanabha, and experts from the Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering, M P Nagaraj and R S Anandamurthy, have assisted the company in coming up with the circuit design behind the system. From the point of implementation, the major advantage is that no re-wiring will be required, according to Techbyte India.

Subramanya said that the implementation of the system would not require much expenditure as it works on available circuits. “The company has been working on the project for over a year. The presentation of the model was received well,” he said.
He added that the during the sound and light show at the Palace premises, the new technology can be implemented to bring variety to lighting.
