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.

Nice place to spent time in silence. If you're a localite then it's good place for photography.. spending time in peace... Hanging out... And if you are coming to Bangalore and visiting here, then it is a one time visiting place... To have a look at the historical monument. Also if you love taking photos.. Then u must wear traditional wear and be ready for posing!!!
The palace is not very big but an amazing example of ancient wooden architecture. The fine carvings and decorative motifs on the walls and pillars are primary sources of attraction, which is a testimony to the stupendous art of historical India. The lush green lawn in front of the palace and a beautiful garden in the vicinity adds a charm to the entire place. The palace has preserved its indisputable beauty and is neatly maintained by the government.
This more 200 years old building is a must see. Wooden columns looks like stone from a distance. A fine park in front of the palace. 200 rupees for foreigners. Just a little disappointed that the rockets on display where far from the original rockets.
A must visit for architects. This place has a very nice vibe and atmosphere. Green lawns and windows that let the sunshine come through them. This place also exhibits Tipu Sultan's glorious days and his things.
People who want to be amazed by magnanimity of Mughal era palace do not come here. This is a small yet elegant summer palace. Construction was started by Hyder Ali in 1781, then Mysore ruler and completed by Tipu Sultan in 1791. It has amazing wood work. The size of wooden pillars used in construction is huge. It can be seen in many places because of the damaged plastering. The place is let open for the tourists to do what they want. There is no proper supervision by authorities. I fear our people will complete the damage soon.
