Temples for Rama, Kalamma, Ankalamma, Lakshminarayana, Jyothirmayeswara and Anjaneya etc. are found and the icons are adored with due prayers. Some of the temples built and maintained by barbers, goldsmiths, Dalavayis etc. are quite attractive and the inscriptions reveal many interesting facts. In some of the cells, the images of Ramanuja, Satakopa, Vishvaksena are installed and are venerated fittingly.

Another feature that surprises the visitors is the existence of mosques beside these sculptural marvels. They came into existence during the reign of Haidarali and Tippu Sultan, whose religious toleration is worthy of emulation. Their endowments of jagirs, vessels and jewels are preserved and are shown, when requested . by the visitors. Hindu Muslim unity existed to such enviable degree that none but Srirangapattana claims equality with it. Aren't both of them bred and fed by Mother Cauvery with equal attention? Did she ever discriminate one against the other? Hasn't she been cleansing the sins of all? Hence the unity in diversity; sublimity in divergency and divinity amidst animality.
