about tipu sultan summer palace

Tipu Sultan Summer Palace was 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 Islamic architectural 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-storeyed 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  Tipu Sultan Summer Palace  was used by the British as their secretariat, till the year 1867. Now what is left of the fort is only the main wooden structure, the Delhi Gate that bears a marble plaque recording the spot where a breach in the fort wall delivered Bengaluru Fort to the British, the Sultan's personal artifacts, a small Ganesha temple, two massive gates and remnants of masonry work.
