Mysore is significant as it bonds history, art, religion, culture and the greatness of the kings and nawabs who ruled our country...
Still now one can experience and get engrossed in the life and deeds of the famous historical events and the battle fought by the kings. Mysore reminds us of the famous battle of Tipu Sultan and his father Hyder Ali fought against the British.
