This is the summer palace for Tipu Sultan. The place is in disrepair, sadly. But what is there is still quite something. Worth a look, if you're in Bangalore and into history.

This is an impressively designed and lovely to look at structure near the market. Nothing was going on there the day we passed through, but that made it easier to see the details. We didn't stay long, but it was nice to see where the...More
