Mysore, the historical city of Karnataka is famous across the Globe first for the Architectural Wonder , the Mysore Palace and second for the famous Mysore Masala Dosa. I think to certain extent, we can easily call Mysore Palace as the Indian version of Buckingham Palace and even better. It follows an 'Indo-saracenic" style that combines ancient Indian, Mughal and Edwardian/Victorian style and the result of this is one of the most wonderful Palace and iconic buildings including the likes of the Rashtrapati Bhavan.
