India: Tipu’s Palace


Tipu’s Palace in Bangalore is a nice little oasis of peace and quiet in the busy city.

All in wood and nicely preserved, it’s smaller than the palace near Misore, but it’s well worth a visit. The old guide was pretty enthusiastic about the stories of Tipu’s fights against the English soldiers and the early use of military rockets. Nice stories. An hindu temple is next door (but was closed at the time).
