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.

This is the last of Tipu Sultan's palaces outside his capital Srirangapatna. It is a well maintained structure given the fact that it has seen more than its share of battles and enemies. The structure itself is very interesting and made mostly of wood. Inside it there are some nice paintings of Tipu Sultan and information on his administration of... More

probably not worth the visit unless you are genuinely interested in the Tipu 'story' (which you should be to understand the region) ..of slight rather than outstanding architectural merit, its more about the museum like displays within

Good place for old style Building and Architecture lovers. Maintained well. clean. Calm place to pass time and chat, especially in afternoon and evenings. Can visit once in Bangalore trip. Parking facility is poor.

I had visited this place sometime ago. There is nothing to see apart from the main structure. And no proper display or anything to explain about the importance of this place. Nothing more than a place to click couple of selfies.

Tipu Sultan summer palace has enormous potential for attracting tourists, but unfortunately it has not been developed at all with tourism in mind. No guides, no car parking, no audio visuals. Only a well maintained garden and a large number of posters stuck up on the walls, reading like a text from history books- only in english !

Tipu Sultan Palace is very average and you can skip if you want. No maintenance at all for that is remaining.

When first time i went there i didn't believe that it would be this small. The place is very beautiful and maintained too but is very small in area compared to forts in general.

This place is not as extraordinary as the other forts and places but if you are in bangalore have nothing much to do then it is okay to visit this palace. Good place to just go around see the wooden structures and pillars and take some pictures.

This palace and fort was built in 1800's. At one time, I imagine this was a most beautiful place. The columns are made of solid teak and are beautiful. The place is now under control of Indian government and could use some restoration. The garden is small but beautiful.

I suggest you hire a guide to be able to really appreciate the palace which we did. The palace ground is serene, well kept with luscious greenery. Its a good stop over we had on our way to Karnatake from Bangalore.
