These are the cliches you will hear from people of Mysore.
"Mysore is close to Bangalore", "Mysore has connectivity to Bangalore". A typical Mysorean only knows to rent his house, eat curd rice, drink filter coffee and have siesta every afternoon. I am a Gujarati, and I find Mysoreans on an average are quite lazy.
If connectivity to Bangalore matters a lot, then people of Mysore should book all their cremation sites and burial grounds in Bangalore itself. By doing so, you will keep Mysore clean and pollute Bangalore even more. Apart from the palace, there is nothing worth visiting in Mysore. Your Karnataka government is a third rated government run by Hindutva militants and highly corrupt people.
Mysore is what you people call in Kannada - "Halli".
In Mysore, there are ridiculous rules that buildings shouldn't be taller than the palace, buildings should have domes, minarets, etc. Typical 17th century mentality in Mysore.
Just visit Ahmedabad and you will know the meaning of development. Mysore doesn't have an International Airport either. Tell me frankly, your Mysore healthcare is pathetic, education is all due to government, and thanks to the Marketing tactics of your Karnataka government, Mysore will get that nonsensical "Swacch Survekshan" award.
I have visited Mysore. Mysore is definitely a village.

See Before karnataka was named it was called as mysore not bengaluru and moreover i believe ee are lazy as in 1995 state govt wanted to develop both bengaluru and mysuru in International standards with the present outer ring road but in mysore they took 15 years to complete present 70 km ring road but in bengaluru they completed just in 5 years and when mysore had now got outer Ring road bengaluru started making their another ring road so yep we are lazy but world's largest corporate institute is in mysore not delhi or mumbai and even mumbai is slum come mysore and see gokulam, vidyaranyapura,vijaynagar,jp nagara and world famous mysore dasara not palya Okay it was also one of the planned city

Mysore is far less polluted than Bangalore.
Even the traffic is very less in Mysore. Mysore is much cleaner than Bangalore. The lakes of Mysore are well maintained. Mysore is a very good place to stay in my opinion.
Mysore has very good quality of life.

I am a Chartered Accountant based out of Bangalore, but I am suffering from a severe mental illness. I have a terrible mental illness called Schizophrenia. When I was staying in Bangalore, my Paying Guest owner used to serve me water from toilets. I used to drink toilet water every day in Bangalore. I absolutely hate staying in Bangalore. My brain was affected by tapeworms and they are still causing me problems. The water pollution and noise pollution levels in Bangalore are totally insane.
Now I will be moving to Mysore, which has much lesser pollution levels than Bangalore. I will be visiting a psychiatrist daily in Mysore, who will help in reducing my terrible mental disorder. I am also looking for a doctor in Mysore, for treating the tapeworms in my body.

hi chetan,

Am US citizen i have visited many parts of india. i still feel south is far better than north, i have visited mysore bangalroe, madakeri, coimbatore mangalroe, ooty kochi chennai madurai, trivandarum etc... they all so good when compared to north india. about mysore i visited last year its truly beautiful city with broad avenue roads full trees lot of parks lakes, beautiful residential areas, i visited mysore near by places its full of green weather is awesome. Bangalore also looks same. i dont know what your are talking about here. may be your jealous of prosperous southern cities.

When i think of north only delhi comes to mind. nothing is worth visit in north, my friends said its very dirtier south is rocking.....Bangalore, mysore, chennai, coimbatore, kochi mangalroe many more.....

Another point I have to add is about Greenery. Mysore is situated on the South Karnataka plateau. As a result, it geographically does not have greenery. Map is shown below


But Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Haryana, despite being extremely polluted due to poor Air Quality Index, have a lot of greenery, due to geography. Check the below link


Hence, what I'm trying to say is that, Mysore and its surrounding areas lack fresh air, and Mysore is not a Green city, as many purport it to be. Hence Government of Karnataka has to be very careful about the deforestation happening in and around Mysore.

Hi Anonymous,

That Czech Republic guy has visited the right Mysore, and his view points are correct. Mysore is a place overhyped and highly exaggerated by the Karnataka government, and more importantly by the Kannadigas. Being a former capital of a Princely state, it is nothing but a stagnated village, deprived of growth.
The people in Mysore are lazy, and that's why being just 150 km away from Bangalore, this village hasn't urbanized at all. I hail from Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh, and have visited Mysore. To be frank, Mysore does not even look like a town. I have personally seen many people in Mysore tying cows to their house gates. You Mr. Anonymous are hallucinated, and also think that cow dung is clean, pure and sacred. There is poverty in Mysore. Mysore has one of the lowest Human Development Index in southern India. I have stayed in Bangalore for some years, and I know the surrounding areas of Mysore very well. H D Kote which is in Mysore district, is a place Below Poverty Line. Chamrajnagar and Ramanagara, around 40 km from Mysore are one of the most backward places in Southern India. What is the literacy rate of Mysore? Here is the link


Mysore and its surrounding places' (except Bangalore) literacy rate is much lower than even Uttar Pradesh places. My home town Ghaziabad's literacy rate is 88%. And you Karnataka people mock Uttar Pradesh as BIMARU, illiterate state don't you?
Mysore does not have urban planning either, the roads are in good condition but the place really looks like a village, and probably is one. UP's capital Lucknow has progressed a lot, but people never make a fuss about it, like it's done in Mysore. There are slums right beside the Mysore Palace itself, it's just that people and the Government are in a state of delusion.
And about Air Quality, being quite close to the sea, low population and without any modernization, Mysore's air quality is very bad among the Southern Indian cities. The Air Quality Index reaches 150 on many days. Mysore is only 140 km away from the sea, so don't compare it with UP cities which are extremely far away from the sea.

Whoever this guy from the Czech Republic is, I think he really visited the wrong Mysore. If you can even find a single spot near Mysore Palace where cow dung is found, I'll pay you 100 bucks. Slums! I have been living here for two years and haven't found a single slum. And cow dung isn't considered clean, who told you that? So much ignorant, wow. Get a life
