hints, allegations and things left unsaid...
An infantry unit is said to have held office right above Col Baillie's dungeon. A cannon that rolled through a hole in the roof lies at the very spot till date - it being too heavy for someone to endeavor its restoration to its original place. The hole too; in the vein of leaving things untouched, has been left unrepaired.
Alternative title: A cannon shot with a Canon

I saw a similiar cannon in elephenta caves, its much bigger than this if I am not wrong in estimation.

Hey, was that shot in Srirangapatna?

So was there already a hole that the cannon fell through, or was it like the time I once fell on the floor in a friend's thrid floor apartment and had to be rescued from the second floor?
The roof looks like the cannon did the damage...

Hey Sudhakar, When I had visited Elephanta, I was too small to operate a camera :) - have neither memory nor pictures of the cannon there.
Hey Muthu, yup it was at Srirangapatna.
No idea Inky! Your guess is as good as mine. I have posited another theory in my next (and possibly last) cannon post.
