This is the mausoleum of ‘Tiger of Mysore’ Tippu Sultan, The man who gave the British nightmares in the last quarter of the eighteenth century. Tipu’s father Hyder Ali and mother Fathima Begum. Tippu Sultan built the magnificent structure in 1782-84. The Gumbaz is surrounded by the beautiful garden. The Gumbaz is built on a high and wide platform with an open verandah that has polished pillars all over. The Gumbaz has a large well-shaped dome, it has beautifully carved ebony doors inlaid with ivory and the Gumbaz has carved stone windows with excellent work on it and inscriptions. Inside the tomb Hyader Ali has been laid to rest in the middle and on either side are the tombs of his wife and son. Tippu's tiger stripes cover the walls of the Gumbaz. Next to the Gumbaz is a mosque Masjid-e-aksa. Very peaceful and calm place, I visit at least once in a year. Gumbaz is open from sunrise to sunset. There is no entry fee.
