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.

Old heritage should be protected

I visited this place with my friends, and found this very amazing. The paint or the structure have started to degrade and need to be protected.

Loads of history attached to this palace built by the man whose rockets inspired the American national anthem too. Sadly it's not being maintained well now.

It's the summer palace of great king of mysore Tipu Sultan. It's situated very near to KR market. Mobiles are not allowed inside because of the privacy issues.

It is amazing to visit the Tipu Sultan Fort at the centre of Bangalore. Very close to highly crowded City Market, one wonders how beautifully the monument has been maintained. Must visit the historical monument with family. You can have a stroll in the palace and enjoy the architectural excellence.

Its a beautiful palace. But there is nothing much to see here except that. It has a first floor with empty rooms. It will be over in 20 minutes. You will get good photos here. There is a small museum also which can be visited. The place is very well maintained though. It is recommended to club this with other... More

Good place to spend 15 minutes. You can watch and image how Tippu would have run his darbar from here.
