Description

The Dungeon located to the north of the Ranganathaswamy temple is popularly known as Colonel Bailey's Dungeon and appears to have been used by Tipu Sultan to confine prisoners of war. situated about 14 Km from Mysore, 5 km from Sri Nimishambha Temple, 3.5 km from Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary, 18 km from Brindavan Gardens, 36 km from Somanathapura, 1 km from Srirangapatna fort, 3.6 km from Gumbaz, 4.8 km from Triveni Sangama, 3 km from Darya Daulat Bagh, and 125 km. from Bangalore.

The Dungeon is an oblong structure concealed from view and measures about 30x15 m with a low vaulted roof of brick and mortar and having a series of arches resting on huge pillars dividing the interior into bays. Along the walls are projecting stone slabs having holes, perhaps meant for fastening prisoners to the walls with chains. This dungeon is said to have been used to confine Col. Bailey for a short period.
