1 hr ride from Mysore and 3hrs 30 mins from Bangalore. It has idols of almost all Hindu lords. It has a huge monolithic sculpture of lord Vishnu inside. One can offer pujas with nominal cost.

Sri Ranganathaswamy temple is 1000 years as old. The temple is inside srirangapatna city and entrance will be on your left if you are travelling from Mysore to Bangalore.

A beautiful historical nicely built and maintained Hindu temple of Lord Vishnu lying on sheshnag luxmiji towards his feet. Rare Darshana of feet. Many other deities in the Parikrama. Peaceful neat and clean where Tulsi leaves and flowers are main offerings.

Temple takes you through history and architecture of the place . Management needs to be improved as the temple does require special treatment. Must visit if you are passing by Bangalore-Mysore highway . Very close to main road .

Thank Raju B
