Srirangapatna was the capital of the Mysore province under the Wodeyars of Mysore as well as Haider Ali and Tipu Sultan. To the north-west of the fort where the British troops were sucessful in breaching the fort is an obelisk erected in memory of Josiah Webbe, Esq. by Dewan Purnayya in 1804 AD. Resting on a small platform, the pilastered pillar juts out with a conical top, which also contains a tablet on its eastern face.
