“Tipu Sultan's summer palace: Basking history of Tipu Sultan era”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

Tipu Sultan's summer palace is a must see place. Situated in Srirangapatna (very near Mysore), it was the summer residence of Tipu Sultan till his death in the year 1799 during the Fourth Anglo-Mysore War. Though the surrounding area of the palace is big, the palace building itself is little small when compared to other palaces.

But, the paintings on each side of the wall inside the palace has its own history and is so fantastic and makes us imagine the history itself while reading the explanations of each painting displayed near the wall.

The rare and treasured weapons, furnitures and pictures of the Tipu Sultan and his family and his ministers are so astonishing and eye-catching.

“Tippu Sultan's island kingdom”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

this place is situated on Mysore and Mandya highway it is surrounded by the river Cauvery which gives a look of an island surrounded by the river Cauvery the main fort area is on the one side of the road and the Tippu sultans palace and his burial place is on the other side of the road this place is easily accessible by road and lot of public buses travel up and down from Mysore the main fort area is destroyed in the war between Tippu sultan and British some fort walls are standing even today and a walk around the fort will make you feel the presence of those olden days inside the fort there is Sri Ranganatha Swamy temple going back to the days of Tippu Sultan and there is a mosque where first prayer was offered by Tippu Sultan himself then there is the gate known as water gate from where the soldiers of combined army of Britishers, Marathas and Nizams entered the fort and the place where Tippu Sultans body was found after he was killed in the battle there is also a dungeon where Tippu Sultan use to keep his prisoners in the fort apart from these some old structures remain even today a ride around the fort will show you these structures though most of these structures are in ruins
there is the palace on the other side of the high way which shows the belongings of Tippu Sultan and other artefacts belonging to him are kept their though it is not as big as the palace of mysore there are paintings showing wars and celebrations of those olden days then there is the burial place of Tippu Sultan known as gumbaz where his mother and his family members are buried around the gumbaz his trusted members of his kingdom are buried a little distance from this gumbaz flows the river Cauvery where you can spend some time near it but it is dangerous to go too deep inside the flowing river as many people have lost their life’s in this river
