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

Decided to visit Tipu Sultan's summer palace after reading reviews in TripAdvisor. Generally tripadvisor always helped me to explore the best attractions in the cities wherever I go, but this time it went terribly wrong. Guys! there is no parking for two or four wheeler at Tipu's palace. So, if you are using your own vehicle to visit the palace,... More

I visited this palace with family and found that this tourist attraction palace is not in good shape and maintenance is not up to mark compared to other attraction places. I request management to take care for this historical and cherishable palace so that tourists can be happy and enjoy their trip there.

This place is a must visit. Its one of the best architectures around. The entire view is just superb. Lots to see. Also there is plenty of other entertainment stuffs like elephant and horse riding and is ideal for kids.

The palace is entirely built in wood and is maintained really well. The garden in front complements the structure well. The better time to visit could probably in the early evenings, as the light would fall on the front face of the palace.

This impressive building is well worth a visit. It gives some insight into the reign of the Sultan and shows how and where he spent time. Both the palace and grounds are well maintained and peaceful.

We were out near city center and decided at last moment to visit Tipu Palace, which we have not done having stayed in Bangalore for long (we always thought the the area is very conjugated and may not be worth). To our surprise, the entire area is reasonably neat and clean. Parking is not an issue although Metro work is... More

One of the must visit heritage spots of Bangalore which visitors often miss out. A small summer palace of Tipu Sultan with remarkable arches and symmetrical architecture. In interesting site for history lovers and photographers. Since it is a small structure, one wouldn't require much time to explore.

This is a gem hidden in a part of Bangalore not on the tourist map. I would recommend this place to everyone, especially photographers. Although only a small portion the original palace is left, it is still very interesting to watch. ASI has done a good job at preserving the monument and for once, used a sensible colour combination as... More
