Mysore has served as the capital of the erstwhile princely state of Mysore. Currently, it is one of the largest cities of Karnataka and one of the most visited places in India. It is also known as the 'City of Palaces' and is a famous travel destination in South India. The city was ruled by the Wodeyar rulers except for a short span when it was ruled by Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan. The Wodeyar rulers were great supporters and lovers of art and culture. The city is noted for a large number of palaces and royal buildings. It is a major tourism hub and attracts plenty of visitors during the celebrations of the Dasara festival, for which the city is quite known.

Another feature of Mysore that makes it a prominent city of Karnataka is its proximity to the neighbouring places of interests such as Krishna Raja Sagara Dam, Srirangapatna and the Shivanasamudra falls. The geographical coordinates of the city are 12° 18' N and 76° 42' E and it spans over an area of 128.42 sq km. As per the provisional data of the 2011 census, the population of the city is 9,20,550.

Although the tourism industry is the major contributor to the economy of the city, it also houses other industries related to sandalwood carving, weaving, bronze work and production of salt and lime. Not only this, the growth of the information technology industry has resulted in getting Mysore the second position in terms of software export in Karnataka after Bangalore. There are four industrial areas in and around Mysore - Belagola, Hebbal, Belawadi and Hootagalli, which were established by the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB) for the purpose of industrial development in the city.

Mysore is also known as the cultural capital of Karnataka. The Mysore style of paintings is not only popular but also highlights the distinguished culture of the city. The city is also known for the Mysore silk sarees, which are made from pure silk and gold zari (threads). Mysore Peta, the traditional and indigenous turban worn by the past rulers of the city, is still worn by men during several occasions. Being a tourist destination, the city has a lot to offer to the visitors such as pilgrim places, temples and scenic spots. There are many hill stations nearby the city such Ooty, Madikeri and Sultan Bathery. There are many national parks and wildlife sanctuaries near the city like Nagarhole National Park, Mudumalai National Park and Bandipur National Park to name a few.

The city is accessible through road, rail and air. There are three lines in the Mysore railway station and many intercity express trains connect it to other places. National Highway-212 and State Highway 17 connect Mysore with the nearby cities. The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) and privately owned bus services operate within the city and between other cities.
