Colonel Bailey's Dungeon, Srirangapatna Reviews

  • Situated adjacent to cauvery river and rangnath temple. Walking distance from srirangapattna railway station and bus stop. Here you will learn how prisoners were kept during that period. Tied in chain and more than half body submerged in water and that to starved for several days. When any prisoners expires his body was drained to cauvery to be eaten by crocodiles. Earlier drain hole was very big, now for visitors safety it is reduced. You will find holes where prisoners was tied. Situated on the right side of ragnath temple,when you face towards temple. Hardly 300 meters from temple.

  • Colonel Bailey Dungeon is located in srirangapatna near Sri Ranganatha Swamy temple....... The dungeon is maintained well and clean and it taken over by tippu sultan from British...... This is the under ground Jail where people are locked in stacked to death...... Near by there is tippu sultan’s palace too......

  • Unusual prison but architecture wise beautiful. Tippu Sultan used to keep British officers imprisoned here. No steel bars or doors here though heavy chains are hooked into the walls. Approx three stories down & hence the name Dungeon. Col Bailey died here in 1780. There is a canon lying inside the Dungeon purpose of which is not clear. One idea is that it fell in during the fight with British. Behind the prison flows Kaveri.

  • It is a dungeon like prison where Tipu Sultan used to imprison the captured British soldiers. Colonel Bailey was one such British soldier who was captured by Tipu & kept here after whom the prison has come to be known. The prison rooms have a similarity to the Cellular jail room of Andamans .

  • Felt happy after knowing Britishers were imprisoned here including high rank officers
