Located inside the Bangalore Fort, the opulent palace of Tipu Sultan once served as a summer retreat for the legendary king of Mysore. The palace stands as a fine specimen of Indo-Islamic architecture and is among Bengaluru's most-visited spots.

The most striking part of the palace is its grand architecture that boasts ornamental frescoes, beautiful motifs, protruding balconies and magnificent arches. A visit to the palace introduces visitors with the princely lifestyle enjoyed by king Tipu Sultan. The palace is said to have been originally constructed in 1537 by local chieftain Kempe Gowda. The two-storeyed palace is mostly made of wood and also houses a museum managed by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) that provides glimpses of the life of Tipu Sultan.
