  • Feels good to know about Tipu sultan . And feels patriotic . And there is a river confluence of river Kaveri nearby . Famous for south India Kaveri pushkar festival.
  • This place has great significance, because the great warrior tipu sulthan died during the last KARNATAKA war, The body of the tipu was found on 4th April 1797. In the ever loving memory of the great warrior TIPU STONE TAB has been laid around 3 on 4 sides of the monumentary tab flat dressed story has been laid along With curb stones. On front side of the stone three and half feet stone path way has been laid along with curb stones up to entrance gate for the movement of visitors. The whole flat of 60 ft x60 ft has been nicely fenced. From fencing to TIPS MONUMENTAL STONE all around has been laid with beautiful lush green grass. The whole place has been well made worth a visit as it was quite historic it desired that honour to this great warrior.
  • Tipus Death Place. The place where Tipu's body was found is close to the northern fringe of the fort. The road from Masjid-e-ala ( the mosque with minarets you see as you enter Srirangapatna ) towards the Water Gate passes by this point. A fenced area with a stone marks the area where his body was found Tipu Sultan (20 November 1750 – 4 May 1799), also known as the Tiger of Mysore, was the ruler of the Kingdom of Mysore from 1782 to 1799. He was also a scholar, soldier and poet. Tipu was the eldest son of Sultan Hyder Ali Jutt of Mysore and his wife Fatima Fakhr-un-Nisa. Tipu Sultan born in a Muslim family. His ancestors are said by different sources to be from Persia, Afghanistan, Arabia, and Ferghana in present day Uzbekistan. Mysorean missiles were iron cased rockets fitted with swords in them. These rockets used to travel long, covering various kilometres up in the air before launching down – attacking the enemies with sword. Although there were missiles in the Europe, Mysorean Missiles became famous due to their coverage and destructive capacity. Hyder Ali’s Mysore rockets, undoubtedly, were very advanced missiles than what the British had seen. Tipu Sultan had written a Military Manual Fathul Mujahidin in which he explained the operation of these Mysore Rockets. This was mainly due to the iron tubes which were used for holding the rocket propellant. No wonder, it enabled greater thrust and extended distance up to 2 km. Within the Bangalore fort, there is a palace made of wood famously known as Tipu Sultan’s Summer Palace which though started during the period of Hyder Ali ended during the reign of Tipu Sultan. An example of Indo-Islamic architecture, the walls of the palace are embellished by pretty flower motifs. Currently, the fort is a tourist place in Bangalore near the Kalasipalyam Bus Stand. Tipu Sultan in his tenure also finished the construction of Lal Bagh Botanical Garden in the Bangalore area which was started by his father Haider Ali. The garden has a large collection of tropical plants as well as a lake and an aquarium. Located in South Bangalore, it is one of the major hot spot of Bangalore. The garden is made in the Mughal style and comprises several plants and trees from various nations. Srirangapatnam, the island fortress was the capital of Mysore during the 19th century. It was so well organized with good trade routes that British feared terrible consequences. In addition, the ruler of Mysore had an effective army as that of British army. This led to four wars back to back. Although the first two wars were won by the Ruler of Mysore, the third had dire consequences – Tipu’s two son aged 8 and 10 were detained by the British forces. Finally, in the fourth, Tipuu Sultan the ruler of Mysore breath’d his last in 1799 at Srirangapatnam.
