The Mysuru Palace
Believed to be the fourth to stand this ground,
It’s three predecessors had catastrophe all around!
Struck by lightning the first went down,
Demolition took the second amidst public frown!
The third went up in flames, making way to the extant Phoenix!
Reborn from ashes over a century ago,
The Mysore Palace is an exuberant show!
Many Kings and Queens have come and gone,
So have a million nights and dawn!
This Palace remains an epitome of grandeur!
Illuminated by a million incandescent,
This Palace’s royalty is prominent!
Even in darkness it emanates a sense of strength,
One that’s felt across its breadth and length!
Its mere sight is a sense of pride and of gaiety!
