  • This as well is a lesser known attraction but one that can be covered with Tipu's palace and tomb in a day. Interesting brick and mortar construction, go down a few steep curvy steps and it'll lead yo...  more »

  • A VERY NICE HISTORIC PLACE WORTH SEEING, IT IS PLACE WHERE PRISIONERS WERE TIED WITH CHAINS ON TO THE WALLS. NICE GREENERIES, WELL MAINTAINED PLACE, YOU CAN SEE CANNON BARREL AT THE CENTRE. COLONEL BAILEY WAS KEPT IN THIS DUNGEON, HENCE IT IS NAMED AFTER HIM, AT TIMES MORE TRAFFIC'S ARE OBSERVED. AT THE TOP OF THIS PLACE ONE CAN SEE CAUVERY RIVER AND RAILWAY BRIDGE. A VERY NARROW ROAD, TWO CARS CANNOT PASS IN THE ROAD PLUS VISITORS MAKES THE PLACE MESSED.
  • Place is good but the tour guides spoils the enjoyment of visiting a place. I observed that they are targeting and attacking cars with other state registration. They will come on scooter or stop your Caron the way. The place has a few other POIs close by and this is a common fishing ground of these guides. I got pissed off and left without spending too much time.
  • Please visit Colonel Bailey's Dungeon while visiting Srirangapatna. Nice historical place. A lot of parking area. No parking charge. All places are nicely kept. It's a Jail - Colonel Bailey's Dungeon and it has also a guide. He explains history nicely. You must not skip Colonel Bailey's Dungeon if you visit Mysore.
  • Nice historical place but not maintain cleanly.
  • Nice place which gives you information about history of Tipu Sultan .
