LORD RANGANATHA OF SRIRANGAPATTANA

THE TEMPLE COMPLEX

The unique feature of this mokshapuri is that the holy river Cauvery encircling it washes the temple precints with its sacred water. It is built in the centre of the island and is enclosed by two prakaras with a grand lofty tower designed in the Dravidian style of architecture. The temple complex houses many shrines and niches, and the multiplicity of gods  nshrined in them makes it a veritable Hari-Hara kshetra, where the principal deities of Saivities and Vaishnavates are coexisting and are receiving due prayers sans difference of any kind from any section of the theists. That perhaps speaks volumes of the spirit of toleration the Mulavirat is instilling and advocating since inception. Side by side of the principal shrine, there are many other shrines dedicated to several deities. Mini shrines are housing an infinite number of adorable deities of the Hindu pantheon.
