Wonders at Mysore ..

On 22 August 2008, I happened to visit Mysore with the student-faculty team from University of Redlands and Akron.

The two must see sights in mysore are the Global Education Centre (GEC) of Infosys, the largest corporate training centre in the world. This is a modern day wonder. With software development buildings also side by side, this has the best cricket ground in the country, the best indorr auditorium, enough playng facilities for Tennis, Basketball, Volleyball, swimming, Table tennis, bowling, snooker, a beautiful large gymnasium, what not !!

The other wonder is an old one, the Mysore palace which was rebuilt by Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV of Mysore in 1912 still is majestic. We got a govt guide who took us inside the palace rooms and gave us a good lecture on the palace and its grandeur.
