    Historical place, Tipu Sultan built dungeon in 18 century for British War prisoner .The dungeon measures 30.5 metres X 12.2 metres and is built of brick and mortar.Naked Prisoners were chained to stone slabs fixed on its walls and pour cold water till wrist and cold water that is infested with leeches, in a dark dungeon that was hidden from most of the world.Named after Colonel Bailey who died here in 1780 A.D., this dungeon was used to imprison Captain Baird, Captain Rulay, Colonel Brithwite, Samson, Frazer and Lindsay by Tipu Sultan. One of the theory about Cannon is it fell down during last Tipu sultan war with British. Till date in good condition.
