‘Daria Daulat Bagh’ is the name of garden. It means ‘Garden of Wealth'. It is surrounding the palace, which is built out of Rose and Teakwood. The palace is identified as Dariya Daulat Palace, or ‘Summer Palace’ of Tippu Sultan. ‘Indo-Sarcenic style’ is the method in which it is built using wood, on rectangular plan, on raised platform.
The qualitative quantity of wood used in constructions to its ceilings, walls, pillars, canopies and arches are remarkably wonderful and worth, because they are very brightly and artistically painted.
The interesting aspect to observe is that there are open corridors along the four sides of the platform where wooden pillars are seen at the edges of the Plinth. The walls connect western and eastern wings while other two wings have recessed bays with pillars supporting the roof.
Curiously its staircases are not immediately visible. They are built in the four partition walls dividing audience hall into four rooms at four corners. The central hall connects eastern and western corridors. The wonderful rosewood arches above stone pillars as well as the paintings on the ceilings and walls of the palace are beautiful.
As I have keenly observed the outer walls are dedicated to war scenes, portrait paintings and its inner walls have elegance flowery outline in geometric designs. The Mysore paintings in colorful style on all the space available on walls, pillars, canopies and arches have eye-catching effect on viewers. Added to the lush green garden and open space around would tell the personification of Tippu Sultan. He used this palace as a retreat from the strenuous life of a king. The lively colour used and arabesque work gives the palace a distinctive and gorgeous facet. But the 'Zenana' or 'Harem' is in destroyed condition.
The battle scenes and portraits on outer walls of the palace and inner walls decoration with scrolls of thin plants and flower are attractive. Though ceilings of palace are wooden they are pasted with canvas paintings with flowery model. The celebrated victory achieved by Haider Ali and Tippu Sultan over the English led by Col. Bailee in the battle of Pollilur near Kanchipuram in 1780 are well depicted on western wall.
French soldiers led by Lally, looking through a telescope are painted on the extreme top. The armies led by Haider Ali and Tippu Sultan going to battle and on the right are seen on panels on left wing while Tippu’s army has covered up Col. Bailee seated in palanquin along with his English army are special attraction among the paintings. Nizam of Hyderabad with his army of horsemen and elephants has arrived late to help his English allies, (probably deliberately and intentionally to help Tippu indirectly) are painted on top panels.
The grand sceneries of Darbars of different contemporaries of Tippu Sultan, Rani of Chittor, King of Tanjore, Raja Benares, Balaji Rao II Peshwa, Magadi Kempegowda, Madakari Nayaka of Chitradurga and Krishnaraja Wadeyar II are painted in Mysore style of paintings on eastern wall conspicuously in five rows.
On one spot the painting depicts Tippu's soldiers giving tuff fight to British army. We can clearly see many British officers in the painting. However it was the fatal final Mysore battle when Srirangapatana fell in the hands of British and killing of Tippu on 4.5.1799. Fort walls, portion of Palace and minarets of mosque are painted in the background.
I am sure the splendid work of art provides you the most pleasant and historically enriching pleasure trip. Your journey from Mysore to Daria Daulat Bagh will be easy as there are many public and privates buses, cabs, vans to reach the destination.

Its a nice place to visit and it very clean.

The entrance which is a garden is very well maintained. Inside the building you will see the history of Tipu. His battles, his victory.... The paintings and the designs on the wall is breathtaking and outstanding.

Four of us touring Mysuru visited the summer palace, in the morning on 15th December 2018 along with our guide Joseph. It is also known as “Dariya Daulat” translated as ‘wealth of the sea’. On the way to the palace we stopped at a location marked “Tipu’s Death Place”, marked with a stone, where he died during the war. It is a good place for history lovers to visit.
After purchasing our entry tickets (₹ 200 for foreigners & ₹15 for Indians) we walked to the palace along the access road that runs through the large beautifully maintained garden, an oasis when compared to the outer environs. The guide Joseph told us that it was Tipu’s father, Hyder Ali, who commenced the palace construction in 1778, but was completed by him in 1874 after his father’s death. The rectangular palace sits on a raised platform and the intricately carved arches demonstrate the Indo-Islamic architectural style. The front of the palace, at the time of our visit, was covered with heavy dark-green bamboo curtains, presumably to preserve the valuable wall paintings. It is a two-storey building, supported on large pillars and entirely constructed using teak. The upper storey was not open to the public at the time of our visit. The two balconies on the upper floor are prominent and Tippu conducted his affairs of court from these.
The outer part of the building has wide corridors allowing visitors to observe and appreciate the various paintings. Not an inch had been left without a painting. The outer walls hold paintings of battles conducted by Tipu and his associates, various events of his period as well as portraits. Although we had no access to the upper storey, we could see the attractive ceiling decorated with floral designs.
A portrait of Tipu Sultan adorns one of the rooms in the small museum. His clothes, weapons, pistols, swords and rare paintings are on display in the inner rooms along with lovely and beautiful wall décor.
The Palace is open for public viewing from 8.30 am to 5.30 pm every day. Toilet facilities and drinking water is available. We saw some wheelchairs too for differently abled persons. Photos are permitted without flash. There is fee of ₹25 for the use of a video camera. We spent about 90 minutes at the Palace.

Daria Daulat Bagh was the summer palace of the erstwhile ruler, Tipu Sultan. A small building in the midst of picturesque gardens, this palace has a lot of history within it. One can see Tipu's throne, the clothes he wore and see various paintings depicting the various wars he fought including the final siege, which saw his downfall.

While the palace is definitely very attractive, photography is only allowed outside the building and not within. A couple of people, who were caught trying to click some, were ticked off and made to delete them. One should remember that discretion is definitely advisable in this case!

The entry fee is not much and one can spend 30-45 minutes here.

A nice bagh (garden) with a nice palace inside which is almost made by teakwood.
This palace is made by Tippu Sultan.

One the most interesting thing about this palace is all painting in the style of Mysore paintings.

If you are going for a day tour to Mysore, it is nice to visit this palace.

If you were hoping to take away a few photographic memories of the lovely historical military murals here, prepare to be thwarted by the draconian guards as no photography is allowed. This is not because of potential damage caused by flash as the sun uv protection is woeful anyway, the authorities are worried that you will upload and sell your pics online. Get real. So unless you are passing and need to stretch your legs probably worth a miss.
