About Dariya Daulat bagh

Dariya-Daulat, The wealth of the sea", referred to as the summer palace of Tipu Sultan, was built in the year 1784 A. D. The palace is square in plan, built on a raised stone plinth, with teak pillars running along the outer edge, enclosing a corridor. There are two recessed bays on the northern and southern sides overlooking two large halls, through canopied balconies. The living spaces on the two floors of the palace are accessible by four staircases.

All the walls and ceilings of the entire palace are painted. The paintings depict the victories of Hyder All and Tipu over the British led by Colonel Bailee, the Nizam of Hyderabad arriving at the battlefield, and the durbar scenes of Tipu's contemporaries like the Rani of Chitoor, the Raja of Tanjore, the Raja of Banaras, the Peshwa Balaji Rao II, Magadi Kempegowda, Madakari Nayaka of Chitradurga and Krishnaraja Wodeyar 3rd.After the death of Tipu Sultan In 1799, this palace was occupied by Colonel Arthur Wellesley (later the Duke of Wellington).
