The architectural style of the fort is supposed to be Indo-Islamic and there is a Persian inscription on the gateway that announces its date of construction. There are two dungeons in the lower chambers of the fort that were used to imprison captured British officers. It is also said that Buddha visited and stayed on one of the islands near... More

Hire a guide and sit back to enjoy a historical journey. Remnants of the fort, the Rangaswamy temple, the pigeon offices, the mosque, the summer palace, first rocket launching site, the bridge over Kaveri river...a lot to see and wonder. Srirangapatna has seen many battles and those hair-raising stories till day inspires awe and amaze.

Srirangapatna was capital of Tipu Sultan ,one of the formidable warrior during British times. He and his father Haider Ali ruled for very short time and probably did not get time to build any magnificent structure. Tipu's summer palace is very small and not much to see there. Original fort of Tipu has been totally destroyed. There is a jail... More

If you are into history, this place is a must visit. For those bored with history, clearly stay clear from this place. It's a lot of walk, just to view some historical sites ... but this brings back memories of what it was like in ancient India.

This place is all about Tipu Sultan. His summer palace, his weapons, dresses, paintings, locals who can give good information about Tipu Sultan and his battles. You can also see where his dead body was foundand his samadhi. All in all good place to visit.

We went to Mysore in Apr 2015 and also visited this palace. Overall, we found the place to be good but there is not much to see. There is a small palace which does give good information about Tipu's family and battles but apart from that nothing much. Can be skipped if short of time. Max 1 hr is required... More

It is named as Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace. One can see colour paintings intact even after so many years. They have preserved the dress and weapons used by Tipu Sultan. Every body should visit this place. There are Samadhi also.

This place is of emmence historic importance. You would get to see the place where Tipu Sultan's body was found. The summer palace of Tipu Sultan is worth a visit, although it is not a grand palace. Sri Ranganathaswamy temple is in this town and is worth a visit.

Its a beautiful ancient Vishnu temple and is significant because of the statue pose. The carvings in the temple are nice and you do get transported back in time. Its a must visit if you are going to Mysore. Do note that the temple closes in the after noon from 12 till 4pm.
