One of Bangalore’s busiest markets, the KR market, hides this surprise: an elegant palace built by Tipu Sultan, with teak pillars and frescoes. 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.

I also took a rickshaw here and without telling me, the driver paid two people 100 rupees each to get in, which I'm pretty sure was a ploy just to get his friends money. In fact, anywhere you go in a rickshaw is probably a ploy to get their friends money from tourists. The fee to get in is 450,... More

You can spend 1 to 2 hours there. This was a significant place during Tipu era. Worth visiting if you like history.

Although this is billed as a palace, it's really more of an administrative building where Tipu Sultan literally held court, hearing petitions from his people and resolving disputes. If a local offers to guide you for a tip, accept the offer. Ours was very knowledgeable and left us with great impressions of the life and achievements of Tipu Sultan. The... More

Tipu Sultan Fort is a major Tourist Attraction in town, it is situated in the city center, you need to take ticket to enter the premises, on either side of the Palace are beautiful gardens, which lead to its main entrance. There are beautiful floral motifs embellishing the walls as well as the ceilings of the Tipu Sultan Palace in... More

I think this monument doesn't get the attention and credit it truly deserves. This happens to be Tipu Sultan's summer palace. Very simplistic and modest design, but the history behind it is significant. Worth a visit to pay respects to one of the most iconic emperor of southern India.
