Like me, many of you must have crossed Mysore to go to the destinations like Coorg if you are starting from Bangalore. But, if you are okay taking a detour, you can visit these places as well. Each attractions mentioned here have a unique vibe to it. Here are my recommendations if you have a spare day while going to or returning for .
Mysore is famous for the magnificent Mysore Palace built by Krishnaraja Wadiyar IV, which looks spectacular when it is lighted during the evening. But the Mysore Palace is not Mysore’s only amazing tourist attraction. Here is a list of 6 unique tourist sites within 100 kilometers of Mysore.
Ranganatithu Bird Sanctuary
Distance from Mysore: 18 KMs
Ranganitithu Bird Sanctuary is actually an underrated attraction according to me. Spread over 40 acres of area, this sanctuary is home to 170 bird species. This includes many migratory birds from around the world. Ranganatithu is a short distance away from the holy city of Srirangapatna and can be easily reached from here.
