It was by some coincidence a sound-and-light show or rather light-and-sound show (because light travels faster) at the Mysore Palace. It was a rather haphazard affair where you sit in chairs in the lawns facing the palace. The commentary was in Kannada and we tried o make the most of it. The sights were nice though. Some pics.

And then the lights went on and it was a brilliant sight to behold. Glitter, glitter, gold, gold.
Worth the wait anytime. Someone told me that the Mysore palace has more visitors per year than the Taj. No reason to disbelieve that I guess.
