Description

The Karanji Mansion and its sprawling 32-acre campus in Nazarbad, At a distance of 4 km from Mysore Railway Station, 1.5 Kms from Mysore Zoo and next to Karanji Lake. The Maharaja Chamaraja Wodeyar had two sons and three daughters. The sons lived in the Mysore Palace. For the three daughters, he built mansions and named them after his daughter's. The princesses used these mansions after their marriage. The mansion was completed in 1914 and is constructed similarly to the other construction of the mansion, which is in the Indo-Saracenic Renaissance style of the structural design. These mansions were wonderful and were set in a rambling garden. They were built attractively using the best craftsmen of those days.

It earned the epithet Karanji Mansion owing to its proximity to Karanji Lake. It has beautiful arches, sunshades, sculpted stone balconies that rest on a lotus base, carved stone columns, and parapets. In 1965, the mansion’s ownership passed on to the Department of Posts and currently houses the department’s Postal Training Institute. There is also a museum set up by the Postal Department, depicting the postal history of the country, which is accessible to the public. The Postal Department has maintained the mansion and its grounds extremely well.
