Tipu Sultans summer palace , lots of history associated with this palace. The management needs to be improved and better care of the palace is required.

Place has a lot of history, but the ruins are not very well preserved. The whole place needs better management. A bit chaotic

What a magnificient summer palace it was. We could almost visualise Tipu sultan envisioning the present and future in the vast expanse. The exquisite detail of the palace itself especially the paintings of the battle with british and french regiments against Tipu's force. We were pleasantly surprised that the maintenance was above par and restoration where complete...was done beautifully. If... More

Should not miss on this architectural marvel. Garden appears to be well kept. Consists of tombs of Tipu Sultan and most of the close family.

This temple is very beautiful and the architecture is so amazing, you will definitely love the workmanship done here. Even the god statue is very beautiful. You will rarely see this kind of god "Ranganatha Swamy" which is lying down in place of the regular gods you see which is in a standing position. The car parking fees is really... More

Historical importance. Dont miss Tipu's death place, the water gate and dungeon. If these places were well maintained it would have been still better.

The temple was very beautiful and the place gives you a feeling of the war between Tipu and the British army. Bargain hard if you are planning on buying some wooden crafts in the area. Do not pay anything more than 30-40% of what they ask for.

This has many spots worth a visit. I will try and mention a few. River Kaveri splits and flows around this island creating several spots of scenic beauty. Gosai ghat, Sangama, Nimishambha are a few such places. Watch out if you are going to Sangama as this is where many people come to do last rites of their near ones.... More
