Ooty - Mysore
MYSORE: Sandalwood City! Everywhere you go in this beautiful city you'll find yourself surrounded by the lingering aromas of sandalwood, jasmine, rose, musk, frangipani and many others. It's one of the major centres of incense manufacture in India, and scores of small, family-owned agarbathi factories are scattered all over town, their products exported all over the world.
There are plenty of other reasons why you would not want to miss Mysore. Until independence the city was the seat of the maharajas of Mysore, a princely state covering about a third of present day Karnataka.?
