Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple, Srirangapatna

4.5
#1 of 11 in Things to do in 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.

  • We had visited the temple on our way to Coorg from Bangalore. The structure is that of a typical south-indian temple, with intricate stone carvings inside. However, there was a huge queue to visit the...  more »
  • It of the ancient temple in the town . It's inside tippu sultan fort. This is a real message of harmony among different caste . Big salute for people of Srirangapatnam.  more »
  • It is not possible to take photos in the area around the shrine, just outside! A thousand years, the Church of ösisége operating in tap. Architecturally, a never-before-seen nobility and elegance.

  • "This is one of the beautiful and very large Lord Ranganatha temple. This historical place has a very good architectural design and is maintained well. This temple is located on the banks of river Kaveri. The temple houses beautiful stone structures and carvings. You may experience heavy rush during weekends. This is one of the temple that you must visit at least once in your life time."
  • Hmmmm...... Good place but too much crowd... There will horses ride for a walk, not for run... They will take us for a walk........ Nice art.....and the inside of Temple had got good view with lot of carvings....
  • Travel to this place from the main city is bit far.There are no name boards or direction boards guiding to this place. Since lot of tourists travel to this place ,proper direction boards to be kept.coming to the place asuaual if you pay some amount you can reach inside the temple easily instead of standing in queue (corruption :p ) . Temple is not maintained properly(inside). parking charge is also high (Rs.40) . There are some snacks shops outside.
  • Nice historical place. A must see if you are visiting Mysore. Management should work on managing rush in peak seasons. Temples vicinity also needs improvement in cleanliness
  • The person receiving phone number mentioned is utterly rude and non cooperative. Doesnot look to serve the temple or devotees, sounded as a businessman. Phone numbers shouldnt be published if someone responsible is not available with the trust
