Though incomparable to the more famous Tipu Sultan’s palace at Mysore, this is one of the relatively unknown monuments of Bangalore. Visit this palace along with the ruins of the fort nearby. Also nearby are a temple and a mosque. « less

I had read about this place in many blogs and finally thought of giving it a try. So with the help of the Google maps, I started to reach the palace. The road or the way to the destination is nothing less than pathetic, because they road was jam packed and it was a very tiring ride to the location.... More

This is an extremely small palace. Anyway, there are not many attractions in Bangalore so this palace becomes a must go.

The small place which was built as a Summer Residence for Tipu Sultan is not a very spectacular place, but it is a historical place where you can feel the History. I am a big fan of Historical Places and this place should be visited at least once. Entry for Indian Citizens is 5 rupees and for foreigners 100 rupees.... More
