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.

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.

The legacy of Muslim rule in India can safely be said to be the innumerable gardens and memorials that came into existence beginning from say Taj Mahal. Even Bijapur has remarkable structures though greenery is difficult to maintain there. However in Bangalore it is fairly easy to do it and who should be remembered that way but the builder of...

A decently maintained place. For the people who are interested in knowing about Tipu, the great ruler of this region. I went with my family there during December vacation on one Sunday afternoon and found it surprising that there is no parking. I was lucky to find parking in some nearby place. A well maintained garden and nice wooden work.... More

Nice exposure to some of India's history. Well run tourist spot. Entrance is costly but you also obtain a headset with recordings in your language preference to hear history of each room. Some pictures in Palace are not adequate for younger children and should be skipped!

If you have visited other palaces and forts, you will feel that this is a very small palace. The structure is good but it does not look like a palace because of its small size. Maintenance is needed.

We visited the place in February . Though nothing is there now to watch , you can understand the history by visiting the museum . Lots of paintings are there. There is one temple also to visit. Approximate time required is 1 hour.
