Tipu Sultan was the ruler of the Kingdom of Mysore from the year 1782 CE to 1799 CE. Built in the year 1791, the palace was used as the summer residence of the Sultan. It is a two storey building entirely made in pure teak wood with big fluted pillars supporting the whole structure. The walls and the ceilings of the palace are decorated with floral patterns. Islamic concept is used while making the intricately carved arches. As per speculations, the eastern and western balconies of the upper floor were used by the Sultan for conducting the affairs of the state.
The ground floor of the palace now houses a museum which showcases a portrait of the monarch, his clothes, the missiles used during the wars with the British and a couple of his swords. Though the mansion is not grand in size, its amazing wooden architecture is one thing that shouldn’t be missed out. For photography buffs, its magnificent balconies and stairways create a perfect shot. It is located at Albert Victor Road, Chamrajpet, around which proper accommodation under budget is available for vacationers.
