Owner description: 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.

“Not worth visiting”
Reviewed 15 March 2012

The palace is poorly maintained and there is hardly anything worth visiting in the palace. This palace can't be even compared with the Mysore Maharaja's palace. Proper maintenance and additional exhibitions can make this a good tourist spot.

“Not worth a visit”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

It is not much of a palace, as per say. A monument will be a more right description.There is nothing much to see here. Except the old styled architecture and adornments in the building. Can spend hardly one hour here. Anyway, it is a small getaway from the city.

“Worth less than half an hour of visit”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

Though its very much a much recommended place to visit in bangalore on almost every travel guide, its actually nothing much. I went in paying 100 indian rupees(for foreigners and 5 rupees for indian citizens) for about half an hour then i left.
There's a little museum (and it is really LITTLE) with a few portraits and history notes describing every pictures. The palace itself is small. You can walk up the stairs to take a view but thats about it. The garden itself is pleasant for some photoshooting and thats about all you can do at the palace.
Oh and if you did pay to go inside, make sure you ask the man at the counter to get you a booklet explaining about the palace and its history or else he wont. cheers.
