Tour Ambavilas Palace virtually

Visitors can have a 360 degree view

 Or forgot to spend some good time on antique paintings on palace walls? Don’t worry, you can pass through the same aisles again, without burning a hole in your pocket, or losing a complete day while doing that.

The Mysore Palace Board is all set to launch ‘virtual tour’ of the Palace on August 14. If all goes according to the plans, Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa will be dedicating the new facility, as he will be in the city on the day to attend party’s convention. Deputy director, Palace Board, P V Awaradi told Deccan Herald, a separate website has been developed to take the visitors on ‘virtual tour’.

The highlight here is, the visitors can see every nook and corner of the palace (as permitted now) in 360 degrees.

First time

The officer claimed that it was for the first time, such a website has been designed. In all 21 indicators, from one to 21, have been given with each having names of the attractions inside the Mysore Palace.

It has been designed in accordance with entry and exit points of visitors to the palace.
The tour here also begins with the replica of the wooden palace, followed by the idol of goddess Chamundeshwari, Golden Howdah, elephant gate (earlier it was through this gate palace procession was leaving), paintings, good old furniture, casket room, wrestling yard, kalyana mantapa (where royal marriages were held), swan centre (new durbar hall), private durbar hall (where even now royal scion ascends throne during nine-day Dasara festivities) and illuminated sight of the Palace to name a few.

If you want to get 360 degree view of a particular place, you should place the cursor at one place and click the zoom in option given on the right side of the website.
