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.

Other than the fairly well kept gardens there's not a lot to see. The palace building itself is small and there are a few bits of information on the ground floor but there's little else. Worth a visit if you're nearby, as I was, but I'd be disappointed if I'd made a special journey. In the short time I was... More

I can't believe I spent time and money in a tuk tuk through heat, traffic and dusty construction and then pay 200Rs (2 people) to see this run down, graffitied building with a boring front lawn. There's nothing upstairs except maybe a quick photo op of the columns. Some hanging historical photos or decor would have given it some more... More

After visiting we're left wondering what the colorful photos are if. The place we saw was heavily worn, graffiti covered and devoid of color. It's interesting but not what you would think based on research.

Hearing about this Tipu Sultan, it was a must see. It was how he cheated his way in gaining the Palace. It was a sight to behold as it was old. Great place to take pictures. The domes and pillars are a thing to admire and also the murals.

When I heard about Tipu Sultan Mahal in Bangalore, I was surprised. Visited the Mahal in April First week and it got over as soon as you enter it. It is a very small mahal with old Architecture, Informational Paintings and some old monuments. You can visit the place if you are in near by area. Just going to this... More

a) Tippu's Fort: Tippu Sultan was one of the greatest rulers in the Southern Region. His summer palace is located at KR Market. It is like a large wooden Bunglow with some open place in the front. You need to pay for the entry ticket. You need about 20 minutes to cover this place. There are no guides available here... More

At this spot, even though there is a lot of disturbances outside the palace, it is really calm when u enter the palace.

Its quite a small palace but its still.in good shape. The gardens are well maintained and ots very cool here. Wish some people hadn't scribbled their names on the beautiful walls and ruined them.

The palace speaks about the lifestyle of Tipu Sultan. We get to see the attractive architect and designs on the walls.
