Few Notes
Camera charges are Rs. 100/- extra.
The Garden is normally crowded on weekends and holidays, so if it's viable plan your visit on weekdays.
Even though the garden is open from 08 am to 08 pm, it is really enjoyable during the evening with all lights, fountains, etc. so plan your stay till evening 07:30.
*If you are coming via pandavapura there won't be any toll.
If you are a piscivore, try fresh fish kabab in the fish-shaped stalls located just after the river bridge.
If are staying more than a day in Mysore, and love to see the sunset, then you could get a great view from the KRS dam if the weather is clear.
