This article provides information on the best ways to reach Mysore Palace, Mysore, Karnataka, India.

The city of Mysore is easily accessible by air via major cities in India. It is also connected by train with numerous cities and by road with other cities in Southern India via Bengaluru (Bangalore).

Once you are in the city of Mysore, you can travel around by a rental car which you can hire through your Hotel. Another mode of local transport in Mysore is the auto rickshaw, which you pay by the meter. However, note that the auto rickshaw driver will more often than not hassle you for higher rates.
