It does not look like palace but worth to visit to have view of Ancestral Royal Homes and take nice photographs inside and in lawn.

The entry fee is 25 for Indians and it will take 20 minutes only to see this whole palace. The palace is not at all maintained, even the garden is better than the palace itself. Its too small to be known as a "palace".

The Palace is not so good, I mean it's not a grand palace as that of Wadiyar's in Bangalore. But if you are around Lalbagh you can visit. You can complete the visit around the Palace within a hour.

Tipu's summer palace is a nice reminder of a bygone era. Now almost 250 years old, the building is remarkably sturdy with elegant pillars and wood work. The walls are replete with arch shaped niches (presumably for lamps) with rectangular niches above (for books?). There...More

This was a rest house during summer for Tipu Sultan . He has given little Art with the teak wood material for this building. Has a small garden in the front.

I was searching places to visit in Banglore, So I got this place and I visited there. There are very beautiful walls and roof. Also pillars architecture and design is something very different. But its very small place you will finish watching it so early.

It seems that word Palace in Bangalore has been significantly devalued over past decades and centuries. It should be called rather Palace ruins as the whole place is very poorly maintained and is absolutely not worth the fee they charge (300 rupees per person). Plus...More
