Commissioned by Hyder Ali in 1760, the botanical garden is a home to over 1000 species of flora. The garden also constitutes a diamond shaped Glass House amongst other artistic structures. The garden has also provided a boost to various horticultural practices.

Although the construction only ended in 1944, the palace was bought by the Maharaja of Mysore in 1884. It is currently owned by the royal family of Mysore. Though palace grounds have been used for various functions and events, the greatest one was obviously the rock band Metallica's performance here in 2011.

Inaugurated by the then president of India Shankar Dayal Sharma, the huge complex of the ISKCON is situated on the top of Hare- Krishna Hill. The complex constitutes six other shrines.
