Historic Site Landmark
Once the summer residence of Mysorean ruler Tipu Sultan, Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace stands as a shining example of Indo-Islamic architecture built entirely of teak. As you wander the complex, keep an eye out for floral motifs embellished on the walls, a painting of the grand throne as imagined by Tipu Sultan, and the eastern and western balconies from which Tipu Sultan would conduct court. On the ground floor, browse the small museum depicting Tipu Sultan's achievements, featuring an exhibition of his clothes and crown displayed on silver and gold pedestals. Art lovers may also be interested in works by James Hunter, who sketched various landscapes of South India, displayed in the palace.

  • Tipu Sultan Fort and Palace is a small Palace. It will take about 30 minutes to see the palace. It requires little maintenance. If you have time then you may add in your itinerary.  more »

  • It is a small piece of structure of that time that is still present. All the other structure around it was demolished by poor British rulers. This palace is actually a place where Tipu used to discuss with his cabinet. Made of wood. Not in a very good shape. Need serious restoration work for preserving the beautiful wood work.
  • Nice to see our history and heritage been preserved in nice way. You can understand why it is said as summer palace when you been here. The place is really cool then the outside. Same you can feel it when you are in Tipu summer palace in Srirangapatnam.
  • Short visit to a historic palace right in central Bangalore. Beautiful wood work and painted walls that can be seen in few places still preserved. Lots of scribblings by visitors is shameful. Archeological Society of India has kept a lot of useful history facts in the ground floor gallery. Worth spending time and reading through them..
  • A small palace, worth for a visit of an hour or two. Good collection of paintings ,breifs of the history of Tipu and his reign. Good amenities for tourists like well maintained washroom and drinking water.
  • One small place looking place which is in a dilapidated condition. Not a waste of time but not a must visit. Max time needed to visit is 1 hour. Parking just before the Palace.
