Few weeks back I got a chance to visit Tipu Sultan’s Summer Palace that’s located in Bangalore, India. It’s a fine example of Indo-Islamic architecture and was the summer residence of Tipu Sultan. I would like to share few of my captures and what I sensed from the structural built of this place: the place resonates with the strong personality of the man who shaped it.
Only if my imagination could justify the real feel of these embellished walls.
Hyder Ali started its construction within the walls of the Bengaluru Fort, and it was completed during the reign of Tipu Sultan in 1791.
Multiple arches and balconies on the first floor.
The balcony on the first floor from where Tipu Sultan is believed to conduct his durbar (court) .
The staircase leading to the backyard.
This pit which has been excavated recently boasts to be the location of a beautiful fountain. It was not known till yet but has been sighted in few of the sketches displayed in the museum housed on the ground floor.
If seen under light, the painting inside the niche reflects gold streaks.
Happy exploring :))
