    Visit the palace of Tipu Sultan, a two-story teakwood palace completed in 1791 by the Sultan as a summer retreat. Adorned with pillars, arches and balconies, it resembles the Daria Daulat Palace in Srirangapatnam. On display in the palace museum are the clothing and crown of Tipu Sultan as well as silver vessels presented by a general to Hyder Ali.

    Your last stop for the day is the Tudor style Bangalore Palace built by a Wodeyar king in 1887. The architecture of the palace was inspired by Windsor Palace in England. Take a look at the Gothic windows, battlements and turrets. Walk through picturesque gardens leading to the main entrance, and view exquisite floral motifs, cornices and relief paintings that decorate the elegant palace walls and ceilings. Then head to the Palace Gallery to see the historical photos and elegant carvings on display.

Visit the fort with your guide and hear anecdotes about its historical role in the Sultan’s resistance to British rule. Admire the Islamic style of the intricately carved arches, and visit the well-preserved 16th-century Ganapathi Temple within its courtyard, where Hindu devotees pay homage to Lord Ganesha.
