Tipu Sultan’s Summer Palace, in Bangalore is an example of Indo-Islamic architecture and was the summer residence of the Mysorean ruler Tipu Sultan. Hyder Ali commenced its construction within the walls of the Bangalore Fort, and it was completed during the reign of Tipu Sultan in 1791. After Tipu Sultan’s death in the Fourth Anglo-Mysore War, the British Administration used the palace for its Secretariat before moving to Attara Kacheri in 1868. Today The Archaeology Survey of India maintains the palace, which is located at the centre of Old Bangalore near Kalasipalyam bus stand, as a tourist spot.
