About Tipu Sultan's Palace, Bengaluru

Initially built by Kempe Gowda, the founder of Bengaluru, the palace was later extended by Tipu Sultan, the Emperor of Mysore. Located near the City Market, the fort dates back to the year 1537. This majestic fort stands as a witness to the struggle of the Mysore Emperor against the British domination. The arches are intricately carved and have been built as per the Islamic style. One of the major attractions of the fort is the well-preserved Ganapati temple, which is situated inside the fort. Within the fort there is Tipu Sultan palace, which dates back to year 1790.

The palace has been built entirely of teakwood, and was constructed as the summer residence of Tipu Sultan. This two-storied palace stands tall adorned with pillars, arches and balconies. Beautiful gardens on either side of the Palace lead to its main entrance. The floral motifs embellish the walls as well as the ceilings of the Palace. Tipu Sultan used to conduct the affairs of the state from the western and eastern balconies on the upper floor. After his death the palace was used by the British as their secretariat, till the year 1867. Now what is left of the fort is only the Delhi gate, bearing a marble plaque recording the spot where a breach in the fort wall delivered Bengaluru Fort to the British, wooden palace of Tipu Sultan and his armory, the small Ganesha temple, two massive gates and remnants of masonry work.

Tipu Sultan's Palace, Bengaluru Reviews

  • You can imagine the way a king lived, when you walk through this palace. This is truly beauty and architectural marvel. The amazing size and design shouts it. You have a lot to see here. There only sad thing is they won't allow you to take photos inside. The night view is amazing. If you ever visit there, make sure you stay till night and see the night view with all those lamps lit. There one of the best !!

  • Nice quaint place in the heart of a market. Most things linked to Tipu Sultan are enigmatic. It is nice to learn that Rocket science existed during his times! You can literally see 2 live rockets (missiles) on display here. The complex also houses a 500 year old Lord Vishnu temple, the doors of which open & close according to the whims of the care takers.

  • The history of Tipu Sultan makes one proud to have such ruler fighting ruthlessly against East India Company. His valour is underrated in my honest opinion. This palace is a very peaceful place, near to famous MTR cafe. The palace reminds you of Mysore palaces, and the items kept inside are really worth reading about.

  • A piece of historical monument, well maintained in the city. Very easily accessible from the underground metro station krishnarajendra (K R) market. A good lawn and majestic structure. The pillars and the wood work will remind you of the skills from India's past. Could spend 15 minutes in a day tour.

  • Wow! It definitely has an old school charm, and worth the selfies. It's close to the market place and we'll connected to the metro, so heading in this direction will give you plenty to do. However, I must say it isn't as grand as the Mysore Palace and if you've visited other Mogul palaces in the North this might seem rather simple. That being said it provides quite the history lesson as the historians have documented everything rather well on the ground level, fun facts so worth the read for sure!
