Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple, Srirangapatna

Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple is the first of five sacred sites located along the river and dedicated to a resting form of Lord Vishnu. The temple's most prominent feature is "gopura" (a tower), rising over the entrance gate. Pass through the pillared hall to get to the inner sanctum, which holds a statue of Lord Vishnu lying on the coil of the seven-headed serpent king--one of the primal beings in Hindu religion. Look for three-dimensional reliefs depicting the same subject on one of the minor shrines in the courtyard.

    This is the oldest temple I have ever visited (9th century). It is still used and the inside architecture is very interesting. Amazing what architects were able to create that early in time.  more »

    The temple itself is almost like everyone else in India. I say almost because by see... I was impressed in it is the detail of the figures who make the rounds of the building. A bit more painful, the merchants at the entrance!
