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.

  • At a first glance I felt pity on Tipu Sultan, how could this be a palace for him, surely, he needs somewhere more lavish. There were water dripping over from side walls, palace wasn't big enough or...

  • No physical ticket are given , we need to scan a Qr code at entry gate. which takes us to the website, there we need to enter our names, if there are group of people need to click on Add Adult and enter all names and one govt ID is required to be entered. Entry fee is rs 20/- of Indians and rs 250/- for foreigners. It doesn't take much time to go around. Well maintained place. Worth a visit 👍
  • This is a historic monument at the heart of the city. The place is very dimly lit and should be maintained in a better way. There’s not much to see except the architecture itself and the photos inside. There’s no dedicated place for parking and being a busy road it might be a challenge to find a spot during busy hours. Currently (Dec 2022) ASI is not issuing physical tickets and one has to buy it online and make the payment digitally. Keep this in mind in case someone does not have digital payment enabled on their phone.

  • A little palace near KR market good for one time go. If you are new in city go once Bangalore fort Is also on walking distance form here. Good for some good photos not a very big area it's get crowded sometimes on weekends or holidays. My rating for the place is 3.8/5. PS:- Please buy tickets in advance of possible they are not giving offline tickets in the place.
  • Online 20/- ticket per person with QR code available at main gate. Public toilets are present inside. Good place to visit and guides are available for complete information tour. Need more restoration work now a days to summer palace. This palace is a two storied structure built entirely with wood. The palace boasts of exquisitely carved pillars and rests on a granite base. The upper chamber and balconies could be accessed by four staircases. The upper chamber has a hall with with four rooms and projected balconies. The ground floor houses a museum and displays the antique collections and weapons used in Tipu's time. The museum also gives a very detailed description on the Rockets used by Tipu during the war.
