I have to confess we didnt go to all the temples in Srirangapatna, but did visit what was once Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace. The building is not well maintained, but it is FULL of history being an old wooden building which must have looked amazing in its heyday. It also has the most amazing murals painted on many of the walls depicting scenes of various battles between Tipu Sultan against the British (it took the British a few goes before they eventually defeated the Sultan). The murals were like looking at a photograph of the time and the building later became the residence of the eventual Lord Wellington. As it is not well maintained you need to see these while they are still around. We thought it was worthwhile just to see this - there are other things in Srirangapatna which we didnt go to but overall if you are heading out there anyway make sure you visit this place.
