PALATIAL GATES & TREES

“Celebrating 2017” ( an earlier post)  by seeing the Lush Green Trees that surround all the Gates that lead to  The Mysore Palace in Karanataka, India.

The Jumbo Gate  ( do have a peek into the previous post by this title) is  set in a World of Green . Seen from within the Palace grounds during The Dusshera Celebrations held in October 2016.

Lord Krishna plays the Flute while standing atop the head of a Multi-headed Serpent.

I can only see a World of Green through the palatial Krishna Gate which was reserved for High ranking Officials during the Dusshera Festival while mere mortals like us battled their way in. ( the featured image shows the  minor gate through which mere mortals enter during the festival)

Ancient Trees tell of a glorious  past  as they survive the turmoils of history under the protection of the King within the Palace Grounds in Mysore.

      1. Well I don’t specifically remember seeing any particular tree since My trips were in 1997 and 2010.Quite long ago.
        But I was spellbound by its magnificent beauty surrounded by lush green lawn.
