Well worth visiting on way to/from Mysore. Our tour guide almost discouraged us from going inside. To me it was worth it to see the different devotionals. however, if the line was long, it might not have been. Have some money handy to give a donation so you can be annointed.

This was the capital of Tipu Sultan. Not much to look at, except the Temple of Lord Balaji's Brother, Ranganathan. Although yhe River Cauvery, flows from the side, it cannot be accessed or seen from the inside.

Sri rangapatnam has so much to it. Museums, temples so much more. Every thing is so good and unveils so much about history of India. I liked it so much. Tippu sultan's summer palace is just marvelous and paintings on the sandalwood palace are marvelous. Take out some time to analyze the beauty and carvings on the wall. Gol Gumbaz... More

The whole complex in Srirangapatna is worth a visit. Museums, temples, amazing architecture, we loved visiting each part. Wasn't crowded on the day we went there.

This is a small historical town close to the Mysore City which is a tourist paradise in South India. IT IS 15 km from Mysore on the Bangalore - Mysore NH. You may spend about half day. But you can enjoy it if you have a good guide with you. The places of interest include the Tippu palace, Gumbaz, Nimishamba... More

Srirangapatna temple and tippu's summer palace was good. The architecture in Tippu's tomb was good. If you've hired a guide or if you'd read the history, you could relate to this place better. I would give 3.5/5.
