This small city must be visited before going to Mysore/ Ooty/ Coorg. It reminds us of the Great warrior Tipu Sultan who fought bravely. The Gumbaz, Summer Palace, Dungeons & Jama Masjid are the places where we visited & had a good time

Very interesting history. Read about Tipu Sultan before you go to get the most out of it. We had a guide, but I would have remembered more if would have had some knowledge about Tipu. I thought the dungeons were interesting amongst other sites within the palace.

We were told that this temple dates back more than 3000 years. At the time of our visit, restoration was in progress. The Idol of Vishnu in sleeping mudra lingers in my memory.

I have visited this place 4 times.but every time I visit, I get drifted away to history.. Jama masjid, Tipu Sultan's summer palace, Srirangaswami temple, Haider Ali's family tomb or Tipu's death monument - all are equally fascinating. Don't miss the Sangam of Kaveri, Kabini & Hemavati. Don't take any guide, wastage of money. Read the brief history online before... More

Should not be missed from your visiting list. This place has all the items that Tipu used during his meritorius career . May it be his love for architure, his arms collections or for that matter his state of the art enemy torture chambers.
