“Excellent Architecture With Poor Maintenance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

This temple is very beautiful and the architecture is so amazing, you will definitely love the workmanship done here. Even the god statue is very beautiful. You will rarely see this kind of god "Ranganatha Swamy" which is lying down in place of the regular gods you see which is in a standing position.

The car parking fees is really absurd and he will literally strip you if he finds that you are a tourist.

“Exciting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Historical importance. Dont miss Tipu's death place, the water gate and dungeon. If these places were well maintained it would have been still better.

“Historical place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

The temple was very beautiful and the place gives you a feeling of the war between Tipu and the British army.
Bargain hard if you are planning on buying some wooden crafts in the area. Do not pay anything more than 30-40% of what they ask for.

“Historic place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

This has many spots worth a visit. I will try and mention a few. River Kaveri splits and flows around this island creating several spots of scenic beauty. Gosai ghat, Sangama, Nimishambha are a few such places. Watch out if you are going to Sangama as this is where many people come to do last rites of their near ones. Gosai ghat on Weekends can be very busy. Nimishambha temple and bathing spot is always good except on Fidays when it gets very crowded. Temple in Srirangapatna and the fort is very good too. There are no good restaurants or good facilities anywhere near and you need to carry them from Mysore.
