Photographer's Note

The mausoleum was built by Tipu Sultan in the late 18th C in remembrance of his father - Haider Ali. It is located at the south-easterly end of Srirangapattana Island, near the confluence of the two branches of the Kaveri. His father's tomb is placed in the centre, his mother's to the east, and Tipu Sultan's tomb to the west. Tipu died May 4th 1799 in the battle against the British, which culminated in the fall of Srirangapattana. A mosque may be seen to the west of the mausoleum, as this view is from the south. Geo coordinates are: N, E, elevation 683 metres.
