Best son ever? Tipu Sultan built this tomb and mosque as a tribute to his father, Hyder Ali (1722-1784), after his death. The pillared, domed structure is typical of Isalmic architecture and was constructed on a stone plinth amidst a manicured garden.
The interior chamber was painted with the tiger stripes associated with Tipu.
Today, the structure enshrines the cenotaphs of Hyder Ali, Tipu Sultan and other relatives.
