Tipu Sultan’s erstwhile capital is full of things to see. It’s a river island, with the Kaveri gushing around it, which means a dunk in the water or a coracle ride is a must. Check out the Dariya Daulat, a beautifully painted wooden palace, and the surrounding gardens, as well as the fortress and the very spot where Tipu was killed, for history buffs.
