Set within lovely manicured grounds, Srirangapatna’s star attraction is Tipu’s summer palace, 1km east of the fort. Built from teak and rosewood, the lavish decoration that covers every inch of its interiors is impressive. The ceilings are embellished with floral designs, while the walls bear murals depicting courtly life and Tipu’s campaigns against the British. There’s a small museum within displaying artefacts and interesting paintings.
