Tipu Sultan's Palace - Review
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
Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace. This is not a big palace. Decent place to visit. Most of the Palace is built of pure teak wood with big fluted pillars supporting the whole structure. The place is also well maintained. You can easily spend an hour or two here. It is a place where you can get some good photos if you can avoid the crowd. It also has very good metro connectivity. Walkable from KR Market Metro station. The entry fee for an Indian is 25/- and for a foreigner, it's around 200/-.
Although situated right in the middle of the city, the place has a calmness around this spot. There is no such architectural marvel but the place looks beautiful nonetheless. It is also maintained well. The lawns surrounding the palace adds to the charm. All this also makes the spot very photogenic. You can go there as a couple, with family or friends. The place is friendly for every gathering. Depending on whether you are visiting to check the place out or just stroll around to bask in the calmness, you can complete your trip to the Tipu Sultan palace withing 1-3 hours.
This is a very small Palace at the heart of the city with a historic significance. Most of the Palace is built of wood. The place is also well maintained. You can easily spend an hour or two here. It is a place where you can get some good photos if you can avoid the crowd. It also has very good metro connectivity.
I was expecting a grand palace as I didn't read properly about the place & thereby wasn't well informed. The palace is a smaller version & gives a small glimpse into the era of the Sultan. Nice place to take your acquaintances in Bangalore. There are a few details left from that era & also for additional information there is a temple jut right outside the palace which looked pretty amazingly calm & serene. So you can visit it as I did and feel much much better.
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. Definitely worth a visit . Remember it is open on sundays and the information on websites varies with some saying it is closed. If you are adventurous and want to use the metro - get off at KR market stop - it is walking distance from there !!!
