We had one day car trip from Bangalore to Mysore and the Sri Ranganatha Swamy Temple was the most impressive place as well as the most famous Mysore Palace was. Additionally we saw many local people bathing in the River Kaveri, which is called greater sacredness than the Ganges. However we have realized one day trip to Mysore was too... More

Srirangapatna is very important historical place. Hardly 200 plus years ago a great history was written here. There are claims and counter claims. But the fact that the French army supporting Tipu camped nearby French Rocks (Pandavapura) makes this place of great importance of international history. The Dariya Daulat murals are record of contemporary history. Gubaj is equally an important... More

One of the beautiful temple ever visited. It is one of the oldest ranganatha swamy temple. There is no entry fee. You can reach the place by train - bus or car.

The Temple is the highlight for many "local" tourists, but there is also a bit of the old Fort that remains. Look up Tipoo Sultan if you want a heads up before coming here. Market stalls for tourist bits line the road, as do stalls selling food and rolls of material for making clothes (in every bright colour you could... More

Apparently this is the only place which features the statue of Vishnu in a laying down position. Our's was not a religious visit but seeing that the place wasn't very big, we chose to enter, only to find a maze of people standing in a queue to see the deity. We spent about 45 mins only to reach midway. Fortunately... More

Important to spend one full day there at least to see everything at leisure. Amazing place to shop for crafts as well.

This place is about 15 kms from Mysore and the famous Ranganthaswamy temple is a must see when you are visiting Mysore.
