On the morning of Jan. 13th we traveled to Srirangapatnam and visited five different sites. 

Our first stop was at Colonel Bailey’s Dungeon.  British officer Colonel Bailey, who served as a prisoner of war in Tipu’s time, breathed his last in 1782. The dungeons in Srirangapatna were named after him. Today, it is an important spot to visit for anyone interested in the history of Mysore and the valour of its ruler Tipu Sultan

Our second stop was Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple which was not far from Bailey’s   Dungeon. We were only allowed to photograph areas around and near the alter area but not in the main temple area.

Our third stop was at the Masjid of Tipu Sultan.   Tipu Sultan Mosque.

Our fourth stop was at Tipu Sultan’s Summer Palace.  Again we were only allowed to photograph areas around and near the palace but not inside. The structure was built entirely teak and stands adorned with pillars, arches and balconies.

Our fifth and final stop of the morning was at Tipus Sultan Tomb.  Photos could only be taken in outdoor areas.
