Srirangapatna fort, also called as Tipu’s palace is one of the most popular monuments in India. The architecture of the palace is a mix of Indo-Islamic style and the huge Persian inscription on the entrance gate embodies the date on which the fort was constructed, i.e 1537. This fort has ‘Lal Mahal’ which was the then residence of the most audacious king of Mysore, Tipu Sultan.

The fort was built in a double wall defense system and has four entrances, namely – Delhi, Bangalore, Mysore & Water and Elephant gates. The two dungeons located at the lower chambers of the fort are a must visit. These dungeons were used to detain the British soldiers who were arrested. Srirangapatna Fort also houses a mosque and the Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple, dedicated to Lord Krishna, that is famous for its gopuram and thick fort-like walls.

Various paintings like ‘The storming of Seringapattam’ by Sir Robert Ker can be found on the walls. The paintings depicting the glorious victory of Tipu Sultan over British, also adorn the walls. Do not miss to see the Chaturvimsati pillars that bore carvings of 24 forms of Vishnu, at the inner entrance of the fort. The tomb of Tipu Sultan can be found in the vicinity of the fort.

The fort is scenically located on an island formed by the river Cauvery. On your visit to Mysore, one must definitely visit this fort which is an emblem of history and culture that lived and flourished during the glorious times of Tipu Sultan.
