Brindavan Gardens Light Show & Musical Fountain

The main attraction at the Brindavan Gardens in Mysore happens to be the beautiful array of musical fountains. Coupled with laser lights, these fountains are synchronised to music and go live at the time when the garden is lit up. The flow of water is digitally controlled, which in turn operates an aquatic organ. The pressure from the nearby dam fuels these fountains to put up a colourful display for the visitors, who can also visit a rain shelter and a gallery. The songs played range from soulful instrumental to patriotic songs. On weekdays, you will get to enjoy the scintillating show for one hour from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM while on weekends, the show extends with one hour and the timings are 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
