Things to Do in Mysore

  • Melkote

    Located around 50 kilometres away from the city of Mysore in the Mandya district, Melkote is an interesting place to visit. Listed among one of the beautifully excavated sites in the state, Melkote boasts of some of the oldest rock formations on Earth. The place gained prominence during the 12th century, when the Hindu theologian and philosopher, Ramanujacharya walked in this town and lived here for almost 12 years.

    Two prime highlights of this religious town are Chaluvanarayan (Cheluvanarayan) Swamy Temple and Yoga Narasimha Swamy Temple. The former is located in the town while the latter is set on a hill, overlooking Melkote. The Chaluvanarayan Swamy Temple is dedicated to Lord Cheluvanarayan Swamy and enshrines a metallic idol of the deity. The Yoga Narasimha Swamy Temple, on the other hand, is dedicated to Lord Yoga Narasimha. Both these shrines are symbolic of the antiquity and cultural heritage of Melkote.

    Another major attraction of the place is the Melkote Temple Wildlife Sanctuary, which was established on 17th June 1974. This sanctuary is home to a number of animals and plants. Spot leopards, bonnet macaque, jungle cats, langurs, pangolins and various other animals in their natural habitat while you are here.

    Melkote is also known for housing the Academy of Sanskrit Research. Established in the year 1853, this academy is one of the oldest of its kind in the country.

    Several Hindu festivals are celebrated in Melkote with great zeal and enthusiasm. Pay a visit during the months of March and April to witness the celebrations of Vairamudi Festival. During this time, the place comes alive as thousands of devotees come here to offer their prayers and be a part of the religious processions.

  • Srirangapatna

    Srirangapatna is a charming town located approximately 15 kilometres away from Mysore city. It boasts of an interesting history that dates back several centuries. It served as the capital of many mighty kings, including Hyder Ali and his son Tipu Sultan, who was also known as ‘The Tiger of Mysore’. From one end to another, this town has several monuments that commemorate their imperial reign and combat against the British. Srirangapatna also bears traces of the Hoysala Dynasty. It is believed that originally the town of Srirangapatna was built by the Hoysala king Udayaditya.

    From temples and tombs to cenotaphs and palaces, there are seemingly endless numbers of attractions that can keep tourists engaged for weeks. One of the largest shrines in Karnataka, Ranganathswamy Temple is located in this town. Founded by Thirumalaiah (Ganga Chieftain), this temple witnessed many renovations that were made by the Hoysalas, Mysore Wodeyars and Vijayanagaras. Other important shrines in the town are Shri Narashimha Swamy Temple, Sri Gangadareshwara Swamy Temple and Shri Nimishamba Temple.

    Two dungeons (built for prisoners) namely Cobailey’s Dungeon and Imman’s Dungeon are popular attractions. In Cobailey’s Dungeon, British officers were imprisoned, while the other one was noted for imprisoning Maratha Chief Dhandia Wagh. During the trip, do not miss to pay a visit to Dariya Daulat Bagh, the Summer Palace of Tipu Sultan. This garden area was used as a retreat by the ruler to spend moments of repose. Amidst the garden stands a marvellous palace that flaunts brilliant Saracenic architecture. It is noted for decorative arabesque work and a collection of interesting paintings.

    Worth mentioning among popular attractions of this town are Tipu’s Death Place, Gumbaz, Sangam, Obelisk and Ranganatitu Bird Sanctuary. With so much to see and explore, an excursion to this town is a must for tourists coming to Mysore.
