Amba Vilas Palace, Mysore
Quote:
The Palace of Mysore (also known as the Amba Vilas Palace ) is a palace situated in the city of Mysore . It is the official residence of the Wodeyars - the erstwhile royal family of Mysore, and also houses two durbar halls (ceremonial meeting hall of the royal court).
Mysore is commonly described as the City of Palaces , however, the term "Mysore Palace" specifically refers to one within the old fort. The Wodeyar kings first built a palace in Mysore in the 14th century, it was demolished and constructed multiple times. The current palace construction was commissioned in 1897, and it was completed in 1912 and expanded later around 1940.

Renovation bell rings for St Philomena’s Church

Quote:
Tourist spots in and around Mysore to be developed further

In what could be termed as a Christmas gift, the State tourism department has decided to take up the renovation works of St Philomena’s Church along with a few other prominent tourist spots in the region for the year 2012-13.

The imposing church with architectural grandeur will be renovated at an estimated cost of Rs 80 lakh, keeping in view its heritage. Of the total cost Rs 50 lakh has been approved, sources told Deccan Herald. Taking cognisance of the very significance of the structure built in neo Gothic style in the year 1936 inspired by Cologne Cathedral, Germany, the tourism department has written to the department of heritage to inspect the site and submit an estimate of works that could be taken up.

Parish priest of the church Father Williams who welcomed the recent development said, according to an estimate prepared by the government one year ago, the church needs immediate repairs at an estimated cost of Rs 5.8 crore. The works include arresting the seepage from the damaged roof which gets worse during rains, re-plastering and also wiring that date back to several decades.

However, he was apprehensive that the delay in taking up the works may lead to escalation of the cost and also further damage to the church already withering in parts.

The other tourist spots include; Mudukuthore Mallikarjunaswamy temple at T Narsipura taluk where there are plans to connect the temple to another temple in the rear of the shrine Bettalamma Temple.

Though stairs are constructed up to a distance to facilitate the visitors to the main temple access Bettalamma, there is a demand to complete the stretch further.

Kendagannaswamy gaddige on Bogadi road in Hunsur taluk, Srikanteshwara Swamy Temple at Nanjangud and Sri Vaidyanatheswara Temple at Talkad will also be developed mainly improving the basic infrastructural facilities at an estimated cost of Rs 25 lakh each.

Deputy director of tourism K S Shivalingappa who confirmed about the plans said as is the procedure the land army has been requisitioned to prepare the estimate and muzrai department to take the site into possession.

Cauvery row mars tourism in hills

Quote:
The beginning of the winter season in the hills in December is certainly not something to warm the hearts of those involved in the hospitality industry as the flow of the Cauvery, though it ensured water for the farming community in the delta belt of the state, has turned out to be a blow for tourism in the Nilgiris.

With tension prevailing across the border in Karnataka, the scenario in the hills, especially at Kakkanallah, the inter-state border at Mudumalai tiger reserve (MTR), adjoining Bandipur tiger reserve in Karnataka, wherein buses are not allowed to cross the border, with vehicles registered in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka suffering the same fate, clearly indicates the mood created by the Cauvery row.

The only option available for tourists and other travellers to reach the other side is to travel up to the inter-state border at Kakkanallah, cross the border by foot and change vehicles. Buses from Tamil Nadu and Karnataka ply only up to Kakkanallah.

Tension that is more in the Mysore-Mandya belt has almost paralysed tourist flow from the Karnataka side to the Nilgiris, N. Chandrasekar, secretary of the Nilgiris Hotels and Restaurants Association, said the hospitality industry hopes things will improve in the coming days.

“A large number of tourists from the north enter the hills through the Karnataka side for their winter sojourn. Not only that, weekend tourists flow is generally more from the Karnataka side. For the past three days, there has been a sudden dip in tourist flow from the Karnataka side. No one knows how many days this imbroglio would continue,” he said.

Due to the Cauvery row, vegetables like tomato and onions from Karnataka are taken in trucks and unloaded at the border amidst the jungles and reloaded in TN trucks to be taken to the hills. Same is the case with the hill-grown vegetables which are transported to Karnataka.

A. Kurien, a visitor from Karnataka, waiting to catch a tourist taxi after crossing the inter-state border at Kakkanallah, said the situation was particularly tough for passengers as they are not sure of reaching their destination on time. The police said on Sunday evening they were monitoring the situation and a decision to allow vehicles to cross the border will be taken only after the situation improves on the Karnataka side.

Lesser known Wildlife Parks of India

Quote:
Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary, Mysore: One of the few hidden jewels of South India is the Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary (RBS),15 km from the historical city of Mysore. Nestling on the river Cauvery, spread over an area of 1 sq km, it is a slow section of the river, with many little islands forming nesting sites for migratory birds. The riverine is dotted with trees on these islands that form the landscape, embraced with marshland, thick forest and bush. One can say it gives an impression of a nature crafted private abode of some of the most beautiful water birds endemic to the terrain and rich in variety. Not only that, it also has its share of wildlife which is typical of a marshy land and thick undergrowth.

Ranganathittu though small in area has an advantage of spotting birds from close and is a photographer’s delight. It is the nesting and breeding centre for birds, mainly the Spot Billed Pelicans Kingfishers, Partridges, Egrets, River Terns, Stone Plovers, Herons, Snake Birds, White Ibis, Cormorants, Darters, Open Billed Storks, Spoonbills, Painted Storks, Pintails, Brahminy Duck and so on. The list of mammals at the Sanctuary includes Bonnet Macaques, Fruit Bats, Palm Civets, mongoose, otters, marsh crocodiles and an occasional sighting of the Indian leopard.
