LORD RANGANATHA OF SRIRANGAPATTANA

EMERGENCE OF THE SHRINE

The Ganges though acquired a new name and moved on in new surroundings did not snap her connections with Vaikunta or its Lord Sri Mahavishnu. As she came from the holy feet of Sri Mahavishnu, she wanted to adore him always and wash his feet eternally. So she created three islands during her course and made theists erect gigantic temples dedicated to Ranganatha - another name for Mahavishnu who is worshipped in his reclining posture. The three islands containing unusually huge temples go by the names of Adi Rangam - Srirangapattana situated near Mysore, Madhya Rangam at Sivasamudram, lying near Maddur and Antya Ranga located near Trichirapalli. And at each of these three Mahavishnu is the presiding deity and great rulers endowed them lavishly with jagirs etc. for conducting prayer services regularly on a grand scale.
