Tippu Sulthan's
Birth Place 1753
Tippu was born in Devanahalli
(karnataka) on friday, November
20th, 1753. At the age of fifteen
he used to accompany his father
Hyder Ali, Ruler of Mysore State,
Tippu had a very inquisitive mind
& fascination for learning. His
personal library was consisted of
more than two thousand books in
different languages.
In 1782 Haider Ali's son Tipu
succeeded his father and
declared himself Sultan.
THEIR BOUNDARIES
Both Hyder and Tippu
together assumed full
powers in Mysore and
they
extended
the
boundaries of Mysore
state to a very great
extent
and
made
Mysore a very big state
in South India.
COINS OF SULTHAN
Sultan Battery
It is situated in Boloor.Built in Black Stones by
Tippu Sulthan(King of the then state of Mysore) to
prevent warships.Now the remaining part of the fort is
called as Tippu’s Well. It is today a deserted spot but
its construction is bafflingly exquisite. Although it is a
watchtower, it gives the impression of a miniature
fortress with its arrangements for mounting cannons
all-round.
The government of India has still not declared this
as a heritage site (sigh!).
There is a dark cave like looking tunnel that starts at
the bottom of the fort. Folklore has it that this tunnel
was a escape route built by Tipu Sultan and it ends in
His fort at Srirangapatnam near mysore(more than 300
Kms away !)
•
Bekal served as an important military station of
Tippu Sulthan when he led the great military
expedition to capture Malabar. The coins and other
artifacts unearthed by the archaeological excavation
conducted recently at Bekal fort is a manifestation of
the strong presence of the Mysore sulthans.
The
martyrdom of Tippu Sulthan who died fighting against
the British in 1799 saw the end of Mysorean control
and subsequently the fort came under the English East
India Company.
Tippu Sulthan's
Death Place 1799
In 1763 Hyder Ali of Mysore
conquered Bednoor and his
intention was to capture
entire kerala.
But when his attempt to
conquer Thalassery fort was
foiled, Hyder Ali returned to
Mysore and died there in
1782.
His
son,
Tippu
Sulthan
continued the attack and
conquered Malabar. As per the
Sreerangapattanam treaty of
1792,
Tippu
surrendered
Malabar
except
Tulunadu
(Canara) to the British.
The British got Canara only
after the death of Tippu
Sulthan in 1799.
