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.

I was really amazed with the symmetry of this building. It is a two storey building which appears to be a single storey one. Most of the pillars, ceiling are made with strong wooden pillars. This was built very close to a temple. It served as a temporary office for British too. Although there is no access to kings and queens rooms, the outer architecture will amaze you. It is symmetric along two planes and it is usually very cool inside compared to outside temperature. There is a small museum that has the history of this palace and Tippu's rocket technology. I would definitely recommend for history buffs and children. There are lawns on either sides and at the back.
With Just Rs15, it is worth to see these old constructions. Though it is well maintained, I have seen water leakage from the roof during rain. Place is not crowded and you can visit any time. This place is easily accessible from majestic (less than 5kms). Don't forget to visit Bangalore Fort also which is only 500 meters from here.
Not at all maintained, only the garden was maintained but the building it self was damaged. It was full black walls with plaster coming out. As per the description the walls were red color with some art work on it but now you cant see anything. Totally disappointed. Its very small palace you can finish it in 10 min and another 10-15 min for pics thats it.
Not a Big palace but it would have been a beautiful shelter for Tippu to fight with the beating sunshine of Summers. Many rooms of the palace allotted for maintaining staffs. Its is not a great thing. They should have got separate building near to palace. They are occupying a portion of the palace. It is horrible mismanagement of the government.
This palace ambience is so peaceful. It is one of the best historical place I have visited. It also has a small museum sort of telling about Tipu Sultan.
