Yahoo Map of Mysore!

You don't find street level details of Mysore in Microsoft's Map ( or Google's Map ( I was curious to check Yahoo Map ( to see how detailed level we get to see of Mysore. Surprisingly, Yahoo map has street level details. I could see major roads drawn in the map. When I was going through the streets, I found GRS Fantasy Park right in the middle of the city! I know pretty well that GRS Fantasy Park is situated in the outskirts of the city. In the map, it is shown as near to Narayan Shastry Road. The place was supposed to be marked as "Subbarayana Kere". I wonder how it would be if a traveler depends on these maps to explore the city. If it were some other place, probably that wouldn't have mattered. But, showing one tourist place in a wrong place is certainly a mistake which should be corrected.
