The architectural style of the Mysore Palace is hybrid. That is, its design is a mixture of various schools of architecture. The palace is made in a style collectively called Indo-Saracenic Revival style. The current Mysore Palace is a grand structure, but not the first palace to exist in this location. The earliest palace was built on this spot in the 14th century by King Yaduraya.
