The Battle of Sultanpet Tope was fought on 6 April 1799 between forces of the British East India Company and the Kingdom of Mysore during the Fourth Anglo-Mysore War. The British forces, led by Colonel Arthur Wellesley, failed to gain a critical position outside Seringapatam due to stiff Mysorean resistance and their effective use of rocket artillery. Colonel Wellesley suffered a minor injury and was very nearly captured; this did not prevent him from successfully taking the position the next day. The Siege of Seringapatam began immediately thereafter.
