Temple History :

The Place Srirangpatna had the name of the Srirangapuri in the early ages. Later it got the name of the Srirangapatna. The town is an island being surrounded by the river Cauvery.

Sri Lakshinarasimha, Sri Gangadereshwara, Sri Jyothirmaheshwara and other small temples were located in this town. Among them the main temple is that of Sri Ranganatha. The idol of Lord Ranganatha is in reclining posture on the bed laid out by the serpent Aadi Sesha is about 4.5 meters in length.

The main entrance has Chaturvimsati (four) pillars has the curvings of the 24 forms of Vishnu. There are many other shrines like Ranganayaki, Narasimha, Sudarshana, Gopalakrishna, Srinivasa, Rama and Panchamukha Anjaneya in the complex. An inscription reveals that the temple of Sri Ranganatha was built by a Ganga chieftain by name Tirumalaiah in 984 AD. The navaranga has two massive dvarapalas.

Lord Ranganatha is flanked by Sridevi, Bhudevi and Nabi Brahma at the centre. At his foot is the seated image of goddess Lakshmi identified as Kaveri. There are many sub-shrines within the complex dedicate Narasimha, Gopalakrishna, Srinivasa, Hanuman, Garuda, Ranganayaki, Sudersana Chakra and Alwars.

The credit of building the Sri Ranganathaswamy temple goes to the rulers of the Vijayanagara Empire. Later, The Hoysala kings and Hyder Ali made additional expansions to the temple. The Hoysala kings, Mysore Wodeyar kings and the kings of Vijayanagara have contributed a lot towards the expansion of the temple structure.
