"Summer Retreat of the King"

In the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city, the summer retreat of Tipu Sultan comes as a pleasant respite to tired eyes. Nestled in the heart of Old Bengaluru, the palace sits amid rolling, well-pruned lawns, and is ornamented with many historic inscriptions which are an escape into its thriving heyday. The palace is an airy building, of which little remains, except for the huge balconies and corridors with elegant columns and grand, Mughal arches. Primarily colored in beige and brown, the palace has many open spaces with a few rooms. The ground floor has two rooms which have been converted into a museum housing old photographs and information plaques about the Sultan and his eventful journey towards building the glorious palace. The tiger motif is a recurring symbol across the palace, and it quite explains the fact that Tipu Sultan was very fascinated by this ferocious and proud beast.
