The Mysore palace
The Mysore palace

Mysore is called the City of Palaces because of the number of palaces situated in the city, including Amba Vilas (Main Mysore Palace), Jaganmohana Palace (which has now been converted into an art gallery), Rajendra Vilas (the summer palace, situated in the Chamundi Hills), Lalitha Mahal (which has now been converted into a hotel) and Jayalakshmi Vilas (now on the University of Mysore premises).[9] The main palace of Mysore burned down in 1897, and the present day structure was built on the same site. Externally, the main palace exhibits an Indo-Saracenic style though the interior is distinctly Hoysala in nature.[10] Even though the Government of Karnataka now maintains the Mysore palace, a small portion of the palace has been allocated for the erstwhile Royal family to live in. The Jayalakshmi Vilas Mansion was constructed by Sri Chamaraja Wodeyar for his daughter Jayalakshammanni. It is now a museum dedicated to folk culture.

Before the advent of the English system of education in Mysore, agraharas, which imparted the Vedic system of education, and madrasas served as centres of learning.[43] The modern education saw its beginning in Mysore when a free English school was established here in 1833.[44] In 1854, the East India Company promulgated the Halifax Dispatch which looked at organising the education based on the western model, within the princely Mysore state.[45] The first college to be set up for higher education in Mysore was the Maharaja's College which was founded in 1864.[44] In 1868, the Mysore state decided to establish hobli schools to extend education to the masses.[46] Under this scheme, a school was established in each hobli (a locality within the city) and the education was free. This also lead to the establishment of a Normal school in Mysore which imparted coaching to teachers who were meant to teach in the hobli schools. In 1881, a high school exculsively for girls was established and this was later converted into the Maharani's Women's College.[47] In 1892, the Industrial School, the first institute to impart technical education in the city was started and this was followed by the Chamarajendra Technical Institute in 1913.[48] While the modern system of education was making inroads into the city, some colleges like the Mysore Sanskrit college, which was established in 1876, continued to provide Vedic education.[49] Image File history File links Download high-resolution version (2048x1360, 249 KB) File links The following pages on the English Wikipedia link to this file (pages on other projects are not listed): University of Mysore Talk:Mysore User:Pratheepps ...
