Meaning “the wealth of the river”, an allusion to its proximity to the river, Daria Daulat Bagh was built in 1794 to commemorate the victory of Tipu Sultan’s army over the British. The palace is built mostly of teak wood in the Indo-Sarcenic style typical of the period. The walls, ceilings, pillars, canopies and arches of the palace are painted with intricate floral patterns, while the exterior walls are covered with portraits and battle scenes.
On site is the Tipu Sultan museum which showcases a collection of some of the furniture and weapons used by the Sultan, coins, medals, portraits painted of him and his contemporaries, as well as several European oil paintings and Persian manuscripts. One of the most noteworthy exhibits is the 1800 oil painting “The Storming of Srirangapatna” by Sir Robert Ker Porter, which depicts the fall of Srirangapatna in 1799.
The palace is open daily from 9am to 5pm. The entry free for foreigners is 100 rupees. Photography is not allowed inside the palace.
