Mysore

Once one of the richest cities in India, Mysore has a history of over 1,000 years. After rising to power as the capital of the Wodeyar kings, the city was home to Tipu Sultan, the famous rebel leader known as the "Tiger of Mysore." While Tipu Sultan ultimately perished in his unsuccessful struggle against the British, Mysore survived; through the years, it managed to balance development without lowering living standards or destroying cultural artifacts, a lesson for modern India itself. Today, the city is one of the cleanest and most organized in India, home to a number of significant buildings and historic sights.
