Tipu Sultan (1750-1799) was the de-facto ruler of the Kingdom of

Mysore. He is better known as the 'Tiger of Mysore'. His full name was

Sultan Fateh Ali Tippu and he was born on 20th November, 1750 at

Devanahalli, in present-day Kolar district, near Bangalore, India. He

is the eldest son of Hyder Ali.

Tipu Sultan was a farsighted person who could foresee East India

Company's design to get entrenched in India. He therefore negotiated

with the French for help and also sought assistance from the Amir of

Afghanistan and the Sultan of Turkey. The British were scared of

Tipu's growing strength and after their defeat in 1783 they formed an

alliance with the Nizam of Hyderabad and Marhattas. The French,

however, deserted Tipu after the signing of the Treaty of Versailles.

The British availed the chance with the help of the Nizam and the

Marathas, and started the third Anglo-Mysore war in 1790.

As long as the British fought alone, Tipu always defeated them. But he

could not come over their diplomacy, conspiracy and intrigue. Thus he

was defeated in his capital, Seringapatam, and was forced to sign a

humiliating treaty on March 22, 1792. As a result he had to concede

half of his kingdom and pay an indemnity of 33 million rupees to the

British and their allies. The alliance between the adversaries was

soon broken and in 1795 the British, after defeating the Nizam, once

again turned their attention towards Mysore. After the treaty at

Seringapatam, Tipu Sultan did not waste his time and made extensive

preparations against the British. He had rebuilt his war machine in

the shortest possible time with the help of the French. The British

regarded it as a violation of the treaty. This led to the start of the

fourth Anglo-Mysore war in 1798 with the help of the Nizam. The French

were unable to provide the needed support to Tipu Sultan. Tipu Sultan

retreated to his capital and continued fighting till he breathed his

last in May 1799. Tipu Sultan is buried at a mausoleum that he himself

had built, along with his father Haider Ali and his mother Fatima


Tipu Sultan (November 1750, Devanahalli – 4 May 1799, Srirangapattana), also known as the Tiger of Mysore, was the de facto ruler of the Kingdom of Mysore.


L’origen d’aquest tipus de treball és al nord d’Itàlia, i els seus inicis, a Catalunya, se situen al segle XVII. Era -és- un treball a domicili, però no era -no és- una ‘feina de la casa’. És a dir: era un treball remunerat. No per hores, sinó per peces, per feina feta. Les eines de treball -el coixí, els boixets, les agulles, el fil, els patrons, les tisores- pertanyien, en general, a la puntaire (que se les havia de comprar, o les heretava d’una mare o tia).


The origin of this type of work is in northern Italy, and beginning in Catalonia are located in the seventeenth century. Was-is-a work at home, but it was-not-a 'housework'. That is: he was a paid job. Not for hours, but to spare for work done. The tools work, the pillow, the bobbin, needles, thread, patterns, scissors, belonged generally to puntaire (that he had to buy, or inherited from a mother or aunt).

Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace was the summer residence of the Mysorean ruler Tipu Sultan. The structure has been built entirely with Teak Wood and stands adorned with pillars, arches and balconies. It is an example of Indo-Islamic architecture. It is believed that Tipu Sultan used to conduct his durbar (court) from the eastern and western balconies of the upper floor. There are beautiful floral motifs embellishing the walls of the palace.

This place used to store the armory for Tipu Sultan. Now it is an abandoned place. This heritage site is near Kalasipalayam, Bangalore. Protected by INTACH, Bangalore chapter.

Las flores son de un árbol llamado Tipuana tipu, conocido popularmente como Tipuana y que muchísima gente confunde con una acacia. Su floración es espectacular y le ocurre como al Jacarandá, que el suelo que tiene alrededor se convierte en una alfombra monocromática.

Portrait of a girl in Tipu Sultan Palace, Bangalore, India

Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace is one of the famous palaces of the Mysore city. This royal structure is situated to the west of Kote Venkataramana Temple. Hydar Ali started the construction of this palace, which was completed by his son Tipu Sultan in 1791. This palace was exclusively built to run the durbar, which would deal with the happenings in the territory. Most of the palaces were stone or brick made, but this unique structure was completely built of wood so commonly known as Wooden Palace. Everything used to construct palace, right from its delicately carved pillars, its beams and ceiling is in wood.


The palace has gardens on the either side with fountains in front to keep the air cool. Fountains are no longer present. There are eastern and western balconies, from where Tipu Sultan conducted the territory affairs. These are wonderfully carved and are raised on small pillars. The palace was originally enclosed in a mud fortress, which was built in 17th century by Chikka Devaraja Wodeyar. The structure is built using the Mughal style of architecture, which resembles the Durbar Hall of Akbar at Allahabad. This architecture is a merger of Saracenic and Indian styles. The main floor of the Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace is small but artistically decorated. The tall traditional Indian style carved wooden pillars touching the first floor ceiling look like eight petalled lotus.


The walls and roofs of the Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace is covered with floral painting decorations. The upper floor comprises of the four halls, each with two balconies for the prince. All the ends of the court have balconies for the officer of the highest rank. In a small room on the ground floor, some pictures of Hydar Ali Khan, Tipu Sultan and his sons are displayed.


Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace is a beautiful wooden structure, reflecting history and heritage, and tourists visiting Mysore must make it a point to visit this grand palace to have a wonderful date with history.
