Soo much history still intact. Sadly not many people know about the significance and details of the fort.

The details of the Jamia Masjid for example where there is a natural clock on the balcony where we can still see the prayer markings. With minor restoration of adding a compass needle on top of it will have a working clock showing accurate prayer time! The tiger print walls inside the mosque which are now showing up as the white paint covered by British is peeling off. I was told archeology department is planning restoration which is a great news.

The fort also has water gate and Delhi gate which has some great stories and significance. The prison in the fort also has lot of history to it explains the significance of having it next to river and the man hole to drain the dead.

The entrance and the inside walls of fort also still intact which should be restored and made into a museum along with other key parts of fort like ruins of Lal Mahal etc.,

We had a spare morning prior to departure . We enlisted an Auto Rickshaw driver to take us the 15 klms to Srirangapatnam Fort. The fort is on an island. There are two rounds of defensive walls. Places of interest include the Mosque, a Hindu Temple, the dungeons, the obelisk and the summer palace. The site of the death of the Sultan Tipu - considered to be the original freedom fighter - is also with in the grounds. There was no guide at the dungeons but the security guard gave an excellent interpretation of how the water rose and fell through the dungeon keeping the British Officers submerged to their necks for 20 hours a day. The obelisk records the battalions who served and those who lost their lives during the battles - both victors and vanquished. Walk to the obelisk gives good vision of the defensive walls and the river beyond.
The summer place veranda is decorated from floor to ceiling with copies of various frescos depicting the battles and also daily life with in the fort and palace. There are also some relics and paintings and sketches of the battles, the survivors and the hostages. An excellent presentation and history lesson. There is phone number for a guided tour included in foreigners entrance price. Alternatively a guide can be hired at the front of the palace.

Srirangapatnam is the historical town of Tipu Sultan on the way to Mysore from Bengaluru. It has the fort in which Tipu lived. History lovers go there and see the fort for yourself. There are good markings and indications on the walls telling about the history and formation of the fort. Tipu Sultan's grave is there and also the place where he fought before breathing his last.

At Last I could come face to face with my past fantasy ... After a duration of nearly more than a decade I could actually witness the true facts of this true leader... Sri Ranga Patnam is actually the old capital city or it was like a fort between two rivers... The town is small & it will not take more than 2 to 3 hrs to visit all the sites & its worth an Experience.

This is a fort where it is not properly marked to understand where it starts and where it ends. However, if you drive around I will see multiple points of attraction. This includes Vishnu Temple, a Jain Temple, Point where Tipu was killed, the gates which were broken when English attacked Tipu and also a big Mosque. An interesting place is where Tipu kept 26 British war prisoners captive and tortured them. Many other historical places are around. Overall a nice time spent.

We arrived just as dusk was falling. Not to give this place enough time was a big error. The whole place just oozes atmosphere. I totally buy a previous reviewers piece about just getting in a ricksaw, leaning back and just be here. The place is a wonderful, chaotic but peaceful, community: working, playing, worshiping and living. Isolated from and connected to India - I wanted to stay a night, I recommend you do.

As the name says it's a Fort. I expected to see a fort, but its not a fort there. Just a basement with arch kind of pillars and not well maintained. Ranganatha swamy temple is nearby and that is good to visit. But this Fort is not good
