One of Bangalore’s busiest markets, the KR market, hides this surprise: an elegant palace built by Tipu Sultan, with teak pillars and frescoes. Though incomparable to the more famous Tipu Sultan’s palace at Mysore, this is one of the relatively unknown monuments of Bangalore. Visit this palace along with the ruins of the fort nearby. Also nearby are a temple and a mosque.

Historical Place

This is Tipu Sultan's Palace. Not so big but worth a visit if you love history. It is there in the centre of the city. Easy to locate

The place is very pleasant and peaceful. Palace and it's surroundings are neatly kept and well worth of paying a visit. Somebody is interested in architecture and very old buildings I recommend this palace. The palace situates in one of the busiest part of Bangalore however the peacefulness inside the palace premises is wonderful. The place garden has a wide... More

Walk through K. R. Market, visit the remnants... More

Its one of the worst place I visited in Bengaluru . Its not at all a fort . Its just a small Hall(DARBAR type) front and back side and a very small garden that doesn't make u feel like. It hardly takes 5 minutes to finish our trip.

Good place to visit for people who are history lover. Easily approachable by local buses. Not worth just going to visit this place. You may have to plan such a way where in between some route change you can visit.

The place is undergoing renovation. But there are no guides or audio guides. So, do some bit of reading before you explore this place.

There is a tiny fort and most part has been taken over by modern establishment. Travelling thru a busy , dirty part of the city to go here wasn't an experience I was looking for. But if there is nothing else left for u to do in Bangalore, you can go and spend a few hours.
