The four Mysore Wars fought between the British and the father-son duo, Haider Ali and Tipu Sultan is a well-known and important event in the history of Karnataka. During the Fourth Mysore War, the British troops entered the strong fort of Srirangapatna by breaching the fort wall. Near the water gate, (towards north, near Gangadhara temple), a stranded Tipu was attacked by the British soldiers. One of them tried to snatch his golden belt. Tipu tried to ward him off with his sword. Fearing for his friend's life, another British soldier shot Tipu in the temple. Late in the evening, British officers found the body of Tipu under the heap of dead bodies. A memorial has been erected at the spot in the form of a stone tablet.
