Small town located near Mysore. It has a few places you can visit. There are lots of stories about Tipu Sultan from the local guides. It is best if you have you own vehicle. There are a couple of water places nearby too.

I was priveleged enough to enjoy my visit to Sarangapatna on a bicycle in the company of Stephen Farrell, who runs a cycle tour company called 'My Cycle Tours', and another of the guests at the B&B that Stephen runs in Mysore. We started off in a small village that looked untouched by time in lots of ways, where wooden... More

Visited here on a Sunday with two friends on a day trip to Mysore. The queue to get to the Sanctum with the reclining Vishnu was not too bead, it took about 30 minutes. There are several smaller shrines in the temple complex. The overall structure despite its age is in reasonably good repair. The temple is large enough that... More

I visited this ancient temple as part of my visit to Mysore. The temple is almost similar to one located in Thiruvanathapuram Sri Padmanabha Temple. The worst part of any tourism in India that tourists are taken for granted and even photography is not allowed. No one can remember so much within a short span of time and one almost... More

If you are a historical and architectural person then you should visit Srirangapatna. Here you get to see summer palace of Tipu Sultan, Fort and Srirangapatna temple. It is better to hire a guide so you can get to know everything in detail. The palace is not very well-maintained and there is minimal entry fee. The cameras are totally prohibited... More

The temple is located inside the Srirangapatna fort and comes before the town when you are travelling from Mysore. The temple architecture is beautiful and must visit attraction in Mysore.

The intricacy of the carvings on this temple is extraordinary, and each one evoked a story. Quite apart from the beauty of the place, this helped us to make sense of some of the complexities of the Hindu religion.

In this place the memory of Tipu Sultan still kept alive.A nice and calm place but the seller outside Sriranganathswamy temple ( not every one, specially one mid-aged lady sells goods just beside the horse stable) are very tricky.....she sells Rs. 2/- comb for Rs 80/- to the childrens......BE CAREFUL
