I visited Tipu Sultan Fort and Palace on my way back from Coorg to Bangalore. The management is absolutely stupid and pathetic. While purchasing the entry tickets I showed my PAN card as an identification, the man behind the counter threw it back to me saying is not a valid INDIAN id and even foreign nationals had PAN cards and I need to show my voter's id only. Me, my husband & my friends blasted him on this pathetic behavior, I mean we nowhere looked like foreigners and if my PAN card does not show I am Indian national then what else will prove. It seemed that he wanted us to pay more. Nevertheless we went inside after purchasing on Indian national rates The building and artifacts were not at all maintained and nobody seemed to bother about. The painting were falling off, some of them did not even have the glass to cover the paintings.
There were bunch of school children also visiting at the same time and were creating ruckus. Even the foreign nationals who were visiting the place left because of all the noise. The teaches accompanying the children were least bothered and were enjoying their own moments. Some of the children were also littering and playing loud music. We also left in few minutes. Instead of feeling the history all I could feel was complete disappointment. If something is not done soon, our history and the proof of it will be really lost forever.
