Today Srirangapatna is a suburb of Mysore set beside the River Cauvery, but for a brief period in its history it functioned as the capital of the Mysore state, this was during the rule of Tipu Sultan. Situated on an island mid-stream in the river is the Srirangapatnam Fort and contained within its ramparts is the Dariya Daulat Palace (Summer Palace). Built in 1784 and surrounded by serene and beautiful gardens called Daria Daulat Bagh, the palace is designed in the Indo Saracenic style and is mostly made of teak. The most stellar feature of the palace is that almost all of the space inside including the walls, pillars, canopies and arches are painted with vivid colourful frescoes, delicate graphic patterns of foliage and floral patterns. The wooden ceilings inside are pasted with canvas that is also painted with floral patterns. The top floor of the Daria Daulat Palace is devoted to the Tipu Sultan Museum that displays a collection of Tipu era memorabilia – mainly European paintings
