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

Visited Tippu sultan summer palace in bangalore on 16th Oct 2014. The Architecture is superb and well planned. But the ASI has not protected it well. Tourists /locals have spoilt the palace and the marking on the walls and the treasures are almost gone. Definitely worth seeing, especially after reading a bit about its History.

During some time off an a business trip to Electronic City myself and a colleague took an Auto Rickshaw into the City to see the Tipu Sultan Fort & Palace. High level view is we found the taxi ride of more interest than the end destination. The Fort is free entry but there isn't much too see. There appears to... More

This is just an average place with nothing much to see in it. The architecture is good. It's too small a palace to gather any excitement. The biggest problem is that they don't allow vehicles inside and there is no parking available outside the palace.

Tipu Sultan's summer palace makes up for a short trip. The palace lawns are well maintained. The main structure itself is in reasonable condition, mostly made of wood and stone. The central room in the ground floor showcases the history of this palace. The upper floor contains the main durbar area. The floral motifs on the walls have mostly faded... More

Everytime, I visit Bangalore, I make sure sure that, I visit this Tipu's Summer palace. This is beautiful and maintained, as per Indian standards. Majority of the structure is made up of special wood, to keep the inside temperature during summer cool. The effect can be felt even today, with inside being cooler than outside temperature during peak summer. It... More

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
