Tour description

This 4-hours of a private tour is an excursion from Mysore to Srirangapatnam, the city known for the last battle of Tipu Sultan. A large portion of the battle site remains intact today, including the ramparts, the water gate and the spot where the Sultan's body was found. The island is in a picturesque location on the banks of the Cauvery river. The tour will also take you to visit Tipu Sultan's palace, his mausoleum and the temple dedicated to Sri Ranganathaswamy. You will be accompanied by a private English speaking guide in a fully air-conditioned vehicle.

On this tour, you will visit the city of Srirangapatnam which is not only synonymous with the figure of Tipu Sultan (who died here during a battle against the British Empire) but is also considered to be the prime scene of political change during the reign of the Sultanate of Mysore. Much of the site of Tipu Sultan's battle is still intact today, including the ramparts, the Water Gate, the place where Tipu's body was found, the area where the British prisoners were held and the site of the destroyed palace. This island fortress was the summer capital of Haider Ali and Tipu Sultan and is picturesquely located on the banks of the River Cauvery. Here, you can see Tipu’s summer palace, his mausoleum and the temple dedicated to Sri Ranganathaswamy.
