Tipu's Palace is a beautiful fort located near the city market at the junction of Krishna Rajendra Road and Albert Victor Road. This served as the summer residence of Tipu Sultan till his death in 1799. It was established within the walls of the Bangalore Fort. The construction was started by Hyder Ali and was completed by his son Tipu sultan in 1791.


The whole structure was built with teack wood and has beautiful arches, balconies and pillars. It reflects the Indo-Islamic style of architecture. The eastern and western balconies of the upper floor were used by Tipu to conduct his durbar.


There is a replica of the playmate of Tipu Sultan - a Tiger and this is at present in the Victoria and Albert Museum at London. When Tipu lost his life in the Fourth Anglo Mysore War, it was used as the Secretariat by the British.


A museum is functioning in the ground floor of the Tipu's Palace and it showcases the rare collection of paintings of the palace in 1800s. It is opened to public on all weekdays from 9.30 A.M. to 5.30 P.M.
