Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple, Adiranga 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.

  • Divine, very famous and historic place. Temple authorities please have good maintenance including the deities. Many deities including the main deity are with dust, indicates no periodic cleaning. Concerned authorities to take suitable action
  • Historical place with a lot of positive energy within and the structure is maintained well even till today. Temple trust can do better in terms of maintaining the surroundings and interiors. These kind of places need to be taken up seriously for showcasing our culture and spirituality. Hoping the government will look into these sooner than later. Nevertheless it's worth visiting for anyone who is interested in ancient places.
  • It is a wonderful temple to be visited. It is a place for History. Children will love the Horse ride over there. A very big temple with beautiful sculptures. Take a break from your routine hectic work and you can enjoy a peaceful day here.
  • Classic heritage architecture. Well maintained historical monument. Feel proud of the architecture and structure, standing tall from centuries. How that time designer had thought about life span for so many years is very amazing. Everybody should visit this place.
  • Place of historical significance. Temple built with so many sculptures. Well maintained. Plastic free zone, offerings are given in plates made of leaves. Free food is provided in plenty, good place for family.
