Sultan,s Palace - Tipu Sultan
Within the original citadel, a mudbrick fort built by
Kempe Gowda in 1537, lies Tipu Sultan's Palace, dating
1790. Made mostly out of wood with finely embellished
balconies, Pillars and arches this two-storeyed structure,
of the Daria Daulat Bagh in Srirangapattana served as
a summer retreat of Tipu sultan. He endearingly called
Rashk-e-Jannat, or the "Envy of Heaven". Although now dilapidated,
it is still a hauntingly atmospheric place. While the palace
retains the original elegant teak pillars, most of the
painted decorations have been destroyed. The palace housed
the public administrative offices from 1831, until they
were shifted to the Attara Kacheri in 1868.
