Tipu Sultan's Palace

Tipu Sultan’s Palace was built in the late 18th century as a summer retreat for this former ruler of the kingdom of Mysore. Part of a larger complex which once made up the Bangalore Fort, the palace dates back to 1791 and is a superb example of Indo-Islamic architecture.

The two-story palace is made mostly of teak wood, with many intricately carved double pillars and elegant archways. Four stairways climb up to the long, pillared porch and protruding balconies which overlook the peaceful gardens from which Tipu Sultan once addressed his subjects below. The walls and ceilings of the palace are finely painted with beautifully delicate floral patterns.

On the ground floor there’s a small museum showcasing a few portraits of Tipu Sultan himself, as well as his weapons and his royal robes and crown. There’s also a replica of the “Tipu’s Tiger” a famous mechanical toy dating back to the 18th century which depicts a British solider being devoured by a tiger. The original toy is displayed at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England.

Practical Info:

Tipu Sultan’s Palace is located just off Albert Victor Road at the intersection with Krishna Rajendra Road in Chamrajpet, and is walking distance from the busy KR Market (City Market).
Opening hours: every day between 8:30am and 5:30pm (except Sundays). The entry fee is 100 rupees for foreigners.
