Photographer's Note

Colonel Bailey's dungeon.
The word Dungeon is morbid and imagination conjures up of prisoners suffering in the dark dungeons. To see it for real, travel to Srirangapatna and visit the Dungeon built during the rule of Tipu Sultan. He used the dungeons to confine the British officers. It is named after a British prisoner Colonel Bailey who died in this dungeon in 1780.There are shoulder height stone slabs fixed on the East, North and West walls with holes. The captives would be chained at the wrists and tied to the slab with waist deep cold water.
From the top of the dungeon, the view of Cauvery River and the bridge cutting across is worth taking a picture.
This picture was taken during my college academic tour.
