This photograph of the interior of the Durbar Hall, Palace, Bangalore taken in the 1890s by an unknown photographer, is from the Curzon Collection's 'Souvenir of Mysore Album'. "The entire right wing of the palace consists of a spacious hall, lofty, and well-lighted by bay-windows. The design and construction are modern, as also the furniture and hangings. It is here that the Maharaja holds his durbars, and receives distinguished visitors, when in Bangalore."
