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.

  • One of the best and historical temple which is very near to Mysore. It is located in Srirangapatna. Next to the temple, just behind it you will find railway station and bridge which is really very beautiful. Visit it during early in the morning or evening between 5-6. Nature lover will definitely enjoy this place. Outside the temple you will find more shops to buy some things like photos, things made out of wood, please don't get cheated with those things BE CAREFUL.
  • This temple has 1200 years of History. It a wonderful temple with a lot of stone pillars, some of which are as high as 2-3 floors. The architecture on the stone of goddess, animals is really awesome and wonderful. It's a must visit temple for architecture lovers. The temple is dedicated to lord Ranganathaswamy (Whose temple are usually located on the top of hill). Its very cool and pleasant inside the temple and its also very big. It has a plenty of parking for the vehicles. near by it there is a railway station. Outside the temple there lot of shops which sell you many wooden toys gift items etc.
