Though the island has a lot of historic value, the people who visit these places have treated them so bad that most times, i just wanted to quickly get it over with and move on... Go there if you are a part of a walk or a cycle tour with a guide, else skip it would be my advice..

I really liked this little town. We passed through n our way to Mysore, and we checked out the various Tipu Sultan sites. Our 4 year old is fascinated by Tipu Sultan.

The place is full of history. Proper land marks and road signs are necessary. The road side guides are a nuisance.

My only reason to visit this town was to visit the burial place of Tipu sultan and i was saddened to see the state of affairs at the burial place of one of india's most promnent freedom fighter. The place is crying for maintenance and attention. The lawns around the burial site could be maintained well if given proper attention.

We visited the Tippu sultan sites and noticed that they were not well maintained. This city is steeped in history and archeological sites.
