Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple, Srirangapatna

4.5
#1 of 9 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.

  • 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.

  • The temple is quite popular and it is a living temple as compared to some of the archeological temple sites. Like many other Karnataka temples, it is quite beautiful with great stone carving work.  more »

  • 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
  • Very good view. Architectural design. Would be more happy if they open all the doors inside so that we can see fully
  • Old ancient temple, very good place to visit with family Horse ride is available kids will enjoy that. Peaceful location surrounded by Kaveri river. For Shopping prices were little High. Must visit temple. God will be in sleeping position. Hari OM
