Son-et-lumiere show at Mysore Palace

The historic Mysore Palace, the most magnificent building in Mysore city, will throw up a major attraction of sound-and-light programmes from October-end, before the commencement of the famous Dasara festival.

The foundation-stone for the Rs.150-lakh project of son-et-lumiere was laid on February 22. The Government of India has sanctioned Rs.40 lakh for the project and already released Rs.30 lakhs. The company which has taken up the project had planned to complete it by November, the Rajyotsava Day. However, the Chief Minister, Mr.S.M.Krishna, has suggested to it to complete the same before Dasara, when hundreds of tourists from all over the country and abroad visit Mysore to witness the famous festival.

The sound and light show will be designed on the lines of the one conducted at Red Fort in New Delhi. The show will be put up daily during night and will be for a duration of 30 minutes against the backdrop of the majestic building. It will be in three languages– Kannada, Hindi and English. The history of the erstwhile Mysore State and the rule of the Wodeyars will be brought forth during the show with impressive visual and sound effects. The show can be witnessed by about 250-300 people.

The Palace attracts tourists both during the Dasara season and other days. The local crowd too joins the visitors to witness the gorgeous illumination of the magnificent building on Sundays and public holidays. Over 5,000 tourists visit the Palace every day.
