Father-Son


Thought it was time to meet the father and son. The father, Krishna Raja Wodeyar IV (1901-40…in the foreground), the man who built modern Mysore and son (background), Jayachamarajendra Wodeyar, the last ruler of Mysore.

Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, was such an able ruler and a gentleman, that Gandhi had called him ‘Raja Rishi’ (Saintly King).
