According to the plaque at this site:

"This tomb and mosque was built by Tipu Sultan as a tribute to his illustrious father, Hyder Ali (1722-1784 A.D.) after his death.

Gumbaz is situated at the eastern extreme of Srirangapatna. It enshrines the cenotaphs of Hyder Ali, his wife Fakr-Un-Nisa and Tipu Sultan, after his death in 1799 A.D. It was build on a stone plinth, with polished black granite pillars that run along the corridor around the inner chamber. A magnificant dome crowns the building. The chamber is painted with the tiger stripes that were associated with Tipu.

The structure, laid out amidst a garden, typical of Islamic architecture, also houses the Masjid-E-Aksa.

At the eastern entrance of the Mausoleum is a tablet in Persian script that speaks of the martyrdom of Tipu Sultan in 1799 A.D.

There are also numerous other cenotaphs of the relatives of Tipu's family."
