  • This is an historical place of great importance. This was the dungeon used by Mughal ruler Tippu Sultan to confine the British people. The name was derived from Mr. Colonel Baileys who was confined in this dungeon and died and hence the name. This place has no entrance fee. There is no parking lot as such but cars can be parked. This is a must place to visit for people who are very much interested in History.

  • This is the historical place built by tippu sultan. This dungeon was used to keep British officers and torture them. This ancient monument is very well maintained. There is a Canon lying inside the dungeon. It's one of the most famous tourist spot in Srirangapatna. There is a beautifully maintained lawn as well. My request is to not litter plastic here and to keep the place clean.
