Mysore is blessed with historical monuments, heritage structures aplenty and great temples. What's lacking are trees! Just imagine - how Jaganmohan Palce will look if it is is surrounded by well laid out trees instead of a dirty market!.So too the Venkataramanaswamy temple in vontikoppal.The tourist's walk way to the Mysore Palce in Summer is greeted by scorching heat! And we have the horticultural Dept. sitting next door planning flower shows for Dasara.Can't we have a greenpathway leading to the Palace? Why can't we have Ashoka trees all around the Palace open yard dotted with temples.Even Tourists can sit under the trees in the shade.
Paris planned its trees precisely to decorate the Avenues, Palces and Buildings.These were done hundreds of years back daing back to Napolean period! They do not have any electric line hanging around. All utility linesare underground.
Some photos around the Elysee Palace gives the picture.
