A tomb built by Tipu Sultan for his valiant father “Hyder Ali”. Today the tomb enshrines the cenotaphs of “Tipu, Hyder Ali and mother Fatima Begum”.
The premises around the Gumbaz also have cenotaphs of Tipu’s relatives. Tipus second wife and daughter’s cenotaphs are also present here.
The Gumbaz is around 220 years old and is 20 meters in height, with a granite ceiling and carved walls, geometrically perfect, well polished 36 granite pillars stand support to the whole structure. Inside the Gumbaz, walls are painted with tiger stripes in relation to Tipu’s association with the Tiger. The black polished granite doors with well done carvings are very attractive.
Himavad Gopalaswamy Betta, is a hill (betta in Kannada) located in the Chamarajanagar district of the state of Karnataka,at a height of 1450m India and is extensively wooded. It is also the highest peak in the Bandipur National Park. It lies in the core area of the Bandipur National Park and is frequented by wild life including elephants. Dense fog predominates and covers the hills round the year and thus gets the prefix Himavad (in the native language of Kannada) and the temple of Venugopalaswamy (Lord Krishna) gives the full name of Himavad Gopalaswamy Betta.
Talakadu is a desert like town on the left bank of the Kaveri River at a spot where the river makes a sharp bend. It is 45 km from Mysore and 133 km from Bangalore in Karnataka, India. A historic site, Talakadu once had over 30 temples that today are buried in sand. Now it is a scenic and spiritual pilgrimage centre. Here the eastward flowing Kaveri River changes course and seems magnificently vast as here the sand on its banks spreads over a wide area.
