Tipu sultan palace
Tipu Sultan Palace, built between 1781 and 1791, is identical to the Daria Daulat which is another palace of Tipu Sultan. Emperor referred to it as the ‘Rash-e-Jannat’, meaning abode of happiness and envy of heaven.
Commissioned by Hyder Ali, the construction was completed under the reigns of Tipu Sultan. Located near the fort, this beautiful palace has been converted into a museum, which gives visitors insight into the life of the emperor. Museum is maintained and managed by the Archaeological Survey of India.
The double-storey structure comprises flowery wooden artwork adoring the columns, curves and balconies. Visitors can even stroll in the gardens, on both sides of the palace. The garden in the palace premises encompasses wonderfully cusped rosewood arches, fluted stone pillars and frescos. Tourists can visit this palace year-round, except for Sundays when the museum remains closed
