Tipu's Fort at Srirangapatna holds within it the Juma mosque and the Ranganatha Swamy Temple. Outside the fort, is the Gumbaz, the tomb of Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan. Gumbaz is a magnificent example of Indo-Islamic architecture, with an imposing dome, doors of ebony inlaid with ivory. The Masjid-e-ala mosque built during Tipu's time(1784) was completely painted with the “Baburi“ motif which was later whitewashed by the British. It has two tall graceful minarets and beautifully carved flowery designs on the roof and pillars. In the centre of the mosque are delicately chiseled bunches of grapes and other creepers. A stony solar clock is in the courtyard.
