Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple, Srirangapatna

(4.5/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple is the first of the five sacred sites along the river dedicated to a resting form of Lord Vishnu. The temple dates as far back as the 10th century, which can be seen from an inscription found at the site. Its 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 the three-dimensional reliefs depicting the same subject on one of the minor shrines in the courtyard.
