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 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.

For history lovers this palace is a treat. Tipu Sultan's summer palace is well preserved. Though it is not so big but surely you will get to know about many things.

We visited both of the Tipu's summer palaces, this one and the one in Srirangapatama. Both are worth a visit. The Srirangapatama palace is larger and has more elaborate (and well preserved) wall paintings. But: no photos of the inside, and the outside is covered with green shades. If you are a photographer, the Bangalore palace is much better. It... More
