The Quint: Tipu Sultan’s Armoury Building Relocated for Laying Train Tracks

Tipu Sultan’s pyramid-shaped armoury in Srirangapatanam has moved to a new address after the Indian Railways relocated the heritage structure intact to make way for a track.
This was a first of its kind move by the Indian Railways to trans-locate a heritage property.
A massive exercise was undertaken with the help of experts to trans-locate the building successfully to a nearby location for laying track near Mysore, said a senior Railway Ministry official.
Constructed during Tipu Sultan’s era (1782-1799), the armoury building was located right in the way of the proposed alignment of double track between Bengaluru and Mysore.
