Tipu Sultan´s Summer Palace

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.
