I was at Tipu Sultan’s Palace in Bangalore two days ago. It was a cloudy evening and there wasn’t much light when we got there, but nevertheless managed to take a few pictures. The palace has a series lovely wooden pillars. The palace is entered through an airy hall open at one side, which leads to a few plain rooms. The first floor, reached through stairs at both sides of the hall have a gallery from where, it appears, the Sultan addressed his subjects. When I climbed up the gallery, I was surprised to see that the palace is symmetrical and has another large hall to the other side.
