Mathura - Ranganathji Mandir
As Mathura became the centre of Vaishnavism, many votaries from all over our
Pavitra I3harat settled down and built temples to carry on religious activities.
One such shrine existing here is the Ranganathji mandir constructed by the
Nattukottai Chettiars of Chettinadu, down South. 'Ibis is the only temple that
resembles the South Indian models in everything, say designing of tower, vimana,
images of the deities including the ritualistic prayer services. Its vastness
and sculptural elegance please the eye and soul equally well. Ramanuja
sampradaya is followed in all activities. The archamurti and image of
parivaradevatas display exquisite artistry of the sculptors that detain the
visitors for hour. It is the most visit-worthy place after the Krishna mandir.
is near the famous Krishna temple, accessible by walk or tonga from the bus
