Mysuru receives a good share of tourists because of its cultural heritage. The maximum influx of tourists is during the Dasara festival. Some of the well-known palaces in Mysuru are the Ambavilas Palace (also known as Mysuru Palace), Jaganmohana Palace, Rajendra Vilas, Jayalakshmi Vilas and Lalitha Mahal which have been constructed by the Wodeyars. Another popular tourist destination is the Chamundi Hill which has a Hindu temple of Goddess Chamundeshwari at its top. Other religious locations in Mysuru include the Ganapathi Sachidananda Ashram and the St. Philomena’s Church. The Krishna Raja Sagara dam across the river Cauvery and the adjoining Brindavan Gardens are places which receive a lot of tourists.
