Lal Mahal Palace

Lal Mahal Palace

Really, the ruins of Tipu’s former palace. Per British historians’ and travelers’ accounts, it was once quite stunning. The library was particularly impressive; after killing Tipu Sultan, the British soldiers brought the rare manuscripts and books once contained therein to England.

The palace was dismantled between 1807-1809 AD. Excavations revealed a sophisticated system of underground drains and concealed earthenware piping in the walls.

Now, it’s fenced off and protected by bored-looking guards.
