The fort is located at a distance of around 19 km from Mysore city. The district of Mandya takes the credit of sheltering this amazing Srirangapatana fort. Built by feudal lord, the fort is a construction of 1537. Recognized as Tipu Sultan Fort, Srirangapatna is the second toughest fort of the country. The name Tipu Sultan Fort speaks about the glorious history of the fort.

He was killed here while fighting with the combined force of Nizam of Hyderabad and the British rulers. Battle of Seringapatam, 1799 was the last engagement here. Various significant battles of the history are witnessed by this fort.
Srirangapatna Fort is one of its kind structure. Around 40 ft. high walls on three sides of the fort provide it a magnificent look. Four main entrances of the fort are named as Delhi, Bangalore, Mysore and Water and Elephant gates. Double wall defence system of the fort makes it impenetrable. Located on an island amidst the Cauvery river, the fort enjoys the company of beautiful surroundings.
The architectural style of the fort and Persian inscription on the gateway are irresistible. All these announce its date of construction. This former home to Mysore Tiger is an architecture that has felt his presence and has also witnessed different moments of his lifetime.
Rocket Court in the fort is the place from where the great emperor's men used to launch the missiles. Lal Mahal was the residence place where Tipu Sultan used to live.
