Srirangapatnam is an island of the river Cauvery. The Legendary warrior Tipu Sultan built an island fortress here. This island fort has been a witness to many instances of bravery. The fortress is home to Tipuís mosque, and the famous Ranganatha Swamy Temple. Tipuís Summer Palace, the Wellesley Bridge and the dungeons where British officers were once imprisoned are other attractions of this fort. The ornate white-domed Gumbaz, an imposing structure with doors of ebony inlaid with ivory and lacquered with Tipuís tiger-striped emblem is quite imposing.
About 1 km. to the east of the fort is Tipuís Summer Palace (known as the Daria Daulat Bagh) set amidst a lovely garden. This wall painting of this palace is legendary.
