Constructed by the end of the 18th century entirely from teak, Tipu Sultan’s Summer Palace is an elaborately decorated relic of Bangalore’s royal past, complete with arches and minarets. Originally a summer retreat, the palace now serves as a detailed museum of Tipu Sultan´s life and glorious conquests. Next door is the Venkataramanaswamy Temple, a 300 year old temple built by the Wodeyars. The ruins of Bangalore Fort are also located a few steps away, bearing the testimony of Tipu´s struggle against the British Raj in India.
