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... More

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.

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.

Srirangapatna- the second capital of Mysore during the regime of Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan. Temple is ancient with the God reclining on a coil of serpent, Vasuki. There are other places like Dariya Daulat, Nimishamba temple, Sangam, Ranganathittu Bird sanctuary and Tipu's tomb.

Ranganathaswamy temple is a must in Srirangapatna. Other places like Sangam and Palace are good too. Srirangapatna and near by area is famous for its wood work. Do plan to visit some local toy stores or emporium

Ranganathaswamy temple, Tipu's summer palace and tomb (with those of his parents) and other minor sites worth a short visit.
