Shivamogga sources report from over 1,000 "rockets" used during the period of 18th century Mysore ruler Tipu Sultan have been unearthed from the silt of an abandoned well at a village in Shivamogga district. Meanwhile the workers digging an old well at an area garden at Bidanuru stumbled upon the 'iron cased' cylindrical type of rockets used during the period.



As per report Department of Archaeology Commissioner Venkatesh told PTI that similar rocket type models of the Tipu Sultan period were found near the same place six years ago. Meanwhile he said the rockets would be preserved at 'Shivappa Nayak Museum Shivamogga' as 'rocket gallery.' Moreover similar rockets of the Tipu Sultan period are preserved at London Museum.

Earlier Tipu Sultan, who took over the reins of administration of Mysuru kingdom after the death of his father Hyder Ali, fought the mighty British army fearlessly adopting modern warfare techniques. Recently experts said the "Iron cased rockets" found in the well are designed and crafted as cylindrical iron tubes that can be launched easily by a soldier. Moreover according to experts, Tipu employed this technology in second 'Anglo-Mysore' war in 1780 and achieved remarkable results posing a big challenge to the British Army.
