Days 1-3 - London and Mysuru
We depart London Heathrow on our overnight flight to Bengaluru,
travelling via Dubai. Arriving on Day 2, we
transfer by coach to Mysuru for two nights.
We enjoy a full-day's guided tour on Day 3,
exploring the cultural icons of the city such as St Philomena's
Church, a large neo-Gothic cathedral inspired by Cologne Cathedral
in Germany, and Mysuru Palace, a beautiful and intricately
decorated building that boasts Hindu, Muslim, Gothic and Rajput
architectural influences. We continue to Srirangapatna, known for
its temples and forts and as the site of a major battle between the
British and Tipu Sultan, before pausing for lunch then making our
way to the local market of Chamundi Hills. Our last visit is to the
unique Bull Temple, which features a gigantic 16-foot granite
statue of a bull.
