"The Sultan's Pride"

Popularly known as Tipu Sultan's Fort, the Bangalore Fort was originally constructed in the 16th Century by Kempe Gowda of the Vijayanagar Empire. The original mud fort was built upon by Haider Ali in the 18th Century, and although much of the Bangalore Fort was dismantled over the years, the Delhi Gate and two bastions still stand as testaments to its once formidable might. During the Third Mysore War, the fort served as a base for Tipu Sultan before it was taken over by the British East India Company in 1791. The Sultan's summer palace still stands within the fort complex, as does a Ganpati Temple which is over 500 years old.
