If you love our past, then don't hesitate visit this historic place. Most of the people think mysore palace is of tipu, but tippu's palace was at srirangapatna which was destroyed by Britishers. It's a must visit place for history geeks

There is nothing much left of the city except for the temple. It's not worth visiting this place except to pray at the Ranganatha Swamy temple.
