Owner description: 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.

Good, but really needs a concern from archaeological survey of india. You may visit a place, and may like it too. Visit with family.

This is a very small summer palace that belonged to Tipu Sultan. The building is very badly maintained but the small garden surrounding was well kept. It was appalling to see people treating this as a picnic spot and throwing trash.

Very old and well kept fort. The staff is very helpful and keen to explain every detail if you dare to ask. We had big crowds around us who only rushed through. But we were happy to stay back and enjoy all the details. I liked the atmosphere of decay and defeat. It makes you think about fate and how... More

Great historical place of one of the great warrior of India. Not a big palace but one can explore the history as there are very less rooms to explore. Need proper maintenance.

Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace, in Bangalore, India, is an example of Indo-Islamic architecture and was the summer residence of the Mysorean ruler Tipu Sultan. Nothing great to see here. Its not comparable as palace. Bangalore palace is better than this. But one must see as it is tippu sultan summer palace.

Not very special, but a must see for everyone who lives in Bangalore. It's nice to do some sightseeing close to home and learn about Bangalore's history.
