Due to patronage by royalty over centuries, artisans and craftspeople in Mysore have developed certain products that are quite endemic to Mysore reflecting glimpses of a royal lifestyle. 

Mysore is a major hub for silk production in India; hence silk clothing, particularly sarees from here are much sought after all over the world. 

With intricate brush strokes, delicate lines and gold leaf embellishments, traditional Mysore paintings are made using organic dyes and colours. With subjects mostly of religious nature, these works are highly valued. 

Government Silk Factory:

Sandalwood Oil Factory, Sayyaji road:
Mysore being the largest producer of sandalwood is a great place to pick up sandal wood based products like incense, soap, cosmetics and pure sandalwood oil at a reasonable price.
Languages Spoken: Predominantly Kannada, but English and Hindi are also spoken.

Currency: Indian rupee

Climate: Aside from summer, the climate remains pleasant throughout the year.

Connectivity: Payphones are widely available. Being a bustling city, mobile connectivity will not be an issue here. 

Trivia: Mysore is the place where Goddess Chamundi killed the demon Mahishasura, after whom the city is named.

Culture: Dasara, a ten day festival in Mysore, is its biggest draw. Falling between September and October, celebrations begin with a prayer on Chamundi hill by the royal couple and conclude with a procession of the worshiped royal sword, elephants, camels and horses. Various cultural concerts and exhibitions happen on all days. Inlay work on rosewood is a detailed stage by stage process involving carpentry and hints of jewellery making. Mysore Peta is a traditional turban worn by royalty during durbars. It is a long scarf with zari borders tied around the head and aptly bejeweled. Chewing tambala with betel leaf and other ingredients is a tradition in Indian homes after a meal as it was with royalty earlier. Mysore betel leaf is desired for its special taste.
