Tipu's Summer Palace

Tipu's Summer Palace

Rashk-e-Jannat, the 'Envy of Heaven', and the 'Abode of Peace' – these are the nicknames given to the beautiful and impressive Tipu's Summer Palace, made by the great ruler Tipu Sultan himself. The palace not only reflects sheer luxury and beauty, but also a typical & unique architectural pattern. As the name suggests, it was the place for the king to escape the scorching heat of the summers.


Architecture
Originally, the palace built with mud and bricks, but later Tipu Sultan fortified it by rebuilding it in stone in 1791. It served as a Secretariat after the death of Tipu Sultan. Covering an area of about 400 acres, the palace is built in exactly the same style as the Tipu's Palace in Bangalore. Each structure within this double-storied establishment deserves appreciation.

You can see liberal use of teak wood in its construction, which makes the interiors look elegant. Its meticulously carved pillars, attractive arches and decorated balconies form a major attraction. People believe that Tipu Sultan got inspiration from Windsor Castle, the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world, to build this Summer Palace.

The murals and the painted decorations here are the excellent examples of the art of great artists of that era. One can see the walls and roofs covered with floral painting decorations.
