Additional Information

Guests get to explore the numerous monuments associated with this legendary Sultan. In between sight-seeing we narrate stories of bravery as well as treachery that led to the fall of the one last, true opposition to British colonial rule in the whole of India. On this tour we explore why he is despised by a few of his fellow countrymen on one hand, but is admired by the descendants of the British who vanquished him & ended his Sultanat-e-Khudadad ('Government of God').
It may come as a surprise to many that both Tipu Sultan & Hyder Ali aided the American rebels in the American War of Independence & that one of the first US naval ships was christened USS Haidar Ally. Other surprising facts are how his rockets inspired the US national anthem and his contribution to rocket technology being acknowledged by no less than NASA itself. 
We narrate more such facts to you aided by the beautiful paintings of the Daria Daultat Palace as well as the back drop of the ruins of Srirangapatna themselves.
