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.

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

located in an area where metro construction is in full boom, traffic density high and clouds of dust and smoke floating in the air. The fort has a garden in the front and that's about it

Sweet remains of a summer palace of the Sultan's life 500+ years ago. My guide explained so much...found the nature of the stones used so interesting...cool, absorbs moisture, lasts 'forever', but not as well used today as more expensive choices. This guy was a smart one.

The place is well maintained and I would definitely recommend a visit. Also, a good place for someone who loves photography - we took some amazing pictures especially on the stairs!

It is a well maintained palace and for 1 hour or so you can visit the palace. On weekends and holidays, it get quite crowded. You will learn a lot about Tipu Sultan and the architecture of the palace is also very pleasing.
