Visit during kaveri pushkaram

We have good stay at srirangapatna, and our main purpose is Pushkar visit. We have gone to Srirangapatna for KAVERI Pushkar Bath AND PERFORMING TIRTHAVIDHI. The arrangements at the temple and Kaveri river bank is not good.
We have come from Andhra Pradesh we saw Krishna and Godavari Pushkarams, Govt has made excellent arrangements for the good Bath and darshan of Temple but Karnataka Govt has not done any thing for the welfare of the pilgrimages.
I have bad bathing experience on the banks of River Kaveri during early hours, there is no lighting and proper steps arranged in to river.
Government should make proper arrangements for safety and security of Pilgramages
/tourists my wife lost purse with all cards and sizable money at Nimishambica Temple we have lodged complaint in Srirangam police station. ( I really appreciate srirangapatna Police for their prompt FIR booking)
Srirangapatna is a beautiful island in river Kaveri, this is the ideal place for taking pushkara bathing

The city that saw dynasties change

Forts have always fascinated me! Their positioning, their design, their construction, the hidden secrets, everything about them create awe in one's mind I visited Srirangapatna basically to see the fort, but as I went around, visited places within the fort, I felt this isn't a fort, its a symbol of culture, symbol of eras gone by, the mute speaker of our past Built around Ranganatha temple, from which the city derives its name, this fort has seen it all Initially built as a mud fortification during Vijayanagara empire, this fort has seen constant re-fortification with last major advancement done by Tipu Sultan. From one of the placards I came to know that, the fort was 2nd most formidable fort in India and capturing this fort meant capturing entire Mysore region The visible: Ranganathaswamy temple, Jumma mosque, remains of Tipu's palace, Tipu's place of death The not so visible: The war memorial, The water gate The invisible: The Dungeons I wasn't able to explore this place thoroughly due to lack of time. Will visit again as there is still a lot to see.

Srirangapatna Overview

An oviform island formed by two branches of the river Cauvery, Srirangapatna is located in the district of Mandya in the state of Karnataka. Situated in proximity to the city of Mysore, the entire town is circumvented by the river Cauvery. This beautiful town sprawls over an area of 13 sq km.

History of Srirangapatna

The history of this town dates back to the 9th century, when it was founded by the rulers of the Ganga dynasty. However, the destination came into the limelight during the reign of the Vijayanagara Empire. The rise of the Wodeyar kings marked the downfall of the Vijayanagara Empire.

During the reign of the Wodeyar kings, Raja Wodeyar vanquished Rangaraya in 1610, who was then the viceroy of Srirangapatna. To mark his victory, he celebrated a ten-day long festival, which was known as Navratri and was dedicated to the patron goddess of Mysore, Chamundeshwari. Thus, from 1610, the city remained under the head of Mysore.

After defeating the Wodeyar King, the reign of Srirangapatna was taken over by Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan. As a result, the destination for a short while served as the cosmopolitan capital of this powerful state. Moreover, the place is also known for the famous battle of Seringapatam, which was fought in 1799.

This battle marked the end of the rule of Tipu Sultan. During this battle, he fought against a joint troop of 50,000 men from the Nizam of Hyderabad and British armies. The British forces at the time of battle were led by General George Harris. In addition, this battle also marked the last engagement of the Fourth Anglo-Mysore War.

It was during this battle that Tipu Sultan was betrayed by one of his own comrades and was killed within the fort of Seringapatam. The spot where he fell ultimately is marked by a memorial. After the victory, the joint troops proceeded to plunder Seringapatam and also occupied the palace of Tipu Sultan. Most of the personal belongings of Tipu Sultan, which included gold, cash, clothes and shoes, were all shipped to England.

The beautiful town is one of the famous places in Karnataka owing to its cultural, religious and historic importance. According to the chronicles of history, it is believed that Lord Buddha visited and stayed on one of the islands located near Srirangapatna.

Things to do in Srirangapatna

The destination is famous for the ancient temple, Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple, which is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. It is also one of the largest temples in the state of Karnataka. In addition, tourists can also make a visit to Daria Daulat, which houses the Palace of Tipu Sultan and the Mausoleum of Tipu Sultan. To explore the place better, tourists can also opt for Srirangapatna holiday packages.

Another popular attraction for tourists is Sangama, which is the amalgamation of three holy rivers namely, Cauvery, Kabini and Hemavati. Shivanasamudra Falls, which is located at a distance of 27 km upstream from the destination, also adds to the beauty of the town. It is the second biggest waterfall of the country and is known to be the sixteenth largest in the world.
