Sound & Light Show
The 50 minute Sound and Light Show at the magnificent Amba Vilasa Palace starts with incidents from Hindu mythology, wherein Goddess Chamundi slays the evil demon Mahishasura.
The story then moves on to the founding of the Wadiyar Dynasty, exploits of the great Wadiyar kings like Raja Wadiyar I, Ranadheera Kanteerava Narasaraja Wadiyar and Chikkadevaraja Wadiyar; and the expansion of the Mysuru kingdom under them.
This is followed by the advent and demise of Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan, construction of the new palace, contribution of the pre-eminent Wadiyars kings Krishna Raja Wodeyar III, Chamaraja Wadiyar X, Krishnaraja Wadiyar IV and Jayachamaraja Wadiyar to the building of modern Mysore.
The show culminates on a high note with the world famous Dasara festival.
An engrossing story with riveting dramatic sequences recounted by celebrity voices, lyrical music, songs from varying genres rendered by eminent singers and a highly dynamic lighting design make this show an absolute acoustic and visual treat to the viewer.
