Biligiriranga Hills - Ranganatha Devalaya

Famous for possessing a unique blend of antiquity and modernity, the state of Karnataka claims very many rare relics embodying colourful spectacles of fascinating orient in its pristine purity. The spiritual wealth treasured up in magnificent temples adorned with inimitable artistry of sculptors has catapulted its fame and perched it at the highest point as evidenced by the superb craftsmanship displayed in the Belur and Halebid temples. There are many more sharing such excellences, and Biligiriranga temple is one as such and ranks high among them. Built atop the high white hills called Swetadri in mythology, this Ranganatha temple modeled on the Dravidian style of architecture is luring devout Vaishnavate devotees throughout the year. The temple is fairly big in dimensions and imposing in beautification with superb artistry. The well-chiseled granite icon of Sri Ranganatha in reclining posture with Sridevi and Bhudevi at feet and Brahma at the navel affords a rich feast to the eyes and wrings veneration. Many mini-shrines are installed with Vaishnavate gods. Agamic daily puja is offered and the celebration of periodical festivals is being carried on a grand scale attracting lakhs of persons, partly due to location amidst the sumptuous growth of tall teak, matthi trees etc., besides the ideal abode of a wide variety of wild animals. Its tourist potential is grandly matched with spiritual wealth. Hence deemed a worthy centre of pilgrimage.

It lies 120 km off Mysore, connected by four wheelers.
