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.

  • This is a slice of history residing in the city of Bangalore, waiting to be marveled at. Albeit the palace is by no means royal and humongous as the Mysore Palace but it still offers its tourists with a nice bit of imagination of how life was back then. The woodwork is something to see in this place with huge columns of wood and intricately designed doors and panels. Definitely a yes from my side, if you are in Bangalore, definitely visit this place.

  • This has to be one of the most monumental place I have visited, the artifacts are retired very correctly in a manner that even the public can look up. The infrastructure has be well protected thanks to the conservation of this historical masterpiece. The best part is the public gets to go inside the palace but has to pass through several cross checks while going in like they got to keep their shoes outside which makes many people irritant as they may not have brought their car to keep it in our just a traveler visiting their. But we all get to see what's inside the palace with proper lighting. Awesome place

  • When I planned to visit the palace, The expectation was a big palace like Bangalore palace. But, It is entirely different from my expectation. Also, It was little difficult to find the palace entrance gate using the google map navigation. As per map, I had reached there. But, I couldn't find the entrance. After turning around the area twice, I found the gate in the other side and parked vehicle at the opposite side of the road. Pay and parking is available there. Ticket for the palace is Rs. 15 for Indian citizens. The palace is small, But, having the old traditional beauty. Also, There is a small lawn area

  • A historical palace which is just two storey & mainly builted with wooden. Wooden architecture of this palace is awesome. As well as park is also maintained. Palace was used as the summer residence of the Sultan. Ground floor of the palace now houses a museum. For photography Balcony & staircase creates perfect shot.

  • It is a two storey building entirely made in pure teak wood with big fluted pillars supporting the whole structure.the ground floor of the palace now houses a museum which showcases a portrait of the monarch, his clothes, the missiles used during the wars with the British and a couple of his swords. Though the mansion is not grand in size, its amazing wooden architecture is one thing that shouldn’t be missed out. Thankful
