Divine, large temple+complex

The Ranganathaswamy temple at Srirangam is a beautiful temple with gorgeous gopurams and idols. The idol of Garuda and Sr Ranganathaswamy will take your breath away. The while complex in itself is large and stunning.
Do try to reach here before 7:00 am to avoid crowds

1st Thivya Desam of 108 Thivaya Desam.
Well organised and maintained temple. Had an excellent devotional feeling in the temple. Would suggest to spend atleast 3-4 hrs in the temple. Watch out for the different God's inscripted and worshipped on the pillars of the temple. Please do not just focus on the main God Renganathar...

Recently I visited this temple. Neatly maintained and due to covid-19 , the temple allows devotees in small groups with proper social distancing.. mask should be weared, hands are sanitised using an automatic hand sanitizer machine..
since there are only limited people allowed for Darshan, you could have a good Darshan of Lord Ranga..

Awesome experience

Ranganathaswamy Temple may be the worlds biggest temple complex and consisting many temples or sannadis. It has four massive entrance gates with great gopurams. You must visit Ranganathaswamy moolasthan, Ranganayaki Thayar sannidhi, Krishna and Srinivasa. You must also visit Ramanujar sannidhi consisdered to be suyambu. You can see Ramanuja in sitting posture. Chkarathalwar (Sudarsan) Sannidhi is world famous.
One must be prepared to stand in the queue for long to have darshan.

Not to be missed.

Even if you don't like temples go and see this one. It is vast as well as having huge religious significance. Trichy is South India's equivalent of the big religious site on the Ganges.
With our guide we were able to go up on a roof for even better views of the complex and some stunning photos. He knew all the best positions for getting them.
It is all so massive it is hard to take in, but look closely and the details are superb too.
