LORD RANGANATHA OF SRIRANGAPATTANA

In the complex there are many shrines and are dedicated to gods like Gangadhareswara and Narasimha built in the Dravidian style. In the Navaranga of the Gangadhareswara temple, icons of Ganapathi, Subrahmanya, Saptamatrikas  Narayana and Chamundeswari beckon attention and they are worth-seeing. And some of them resemble the images of the famous Halebid temples. The images of the planets Chandra and Surya flanked by female deities are found at the sides of Navaranga. The Utsavavigrahas of Gangadhareswara are extremely handsome and are mirroring the mastery of artisans and afford feast to the eye. The figures of Dakshinamurthi, Bhairava and the Shiva devotees are executed superbly. Here is found the image of Virabhadra with his consort and it is extremely grand to the sight. In the Narasimha temple, the statues of Wodeyars - the builders are kept with weapons and adornments along with the images of Child Krishna. Another factor that distinguishes this famous shrine from others is the existence of several temples housing Jain deities like Adisrava, Adinath etc.
