It is reported that about 100 old gold coins were found in a village near Mysuru, when digging to construct a toilet. Out of this a few of them belonged to the Hyder Ali period. These gold coins have Shiva Parvathi on one side and Urdu words on the other side.

This once again confirms that there was good relations with the Hindus and Muslims and that the propaganda by the British that Hyder Ali and Tippu Sultan were against the Hindus is completely false.
