Things to Do in Mysore

  • Sri Srikanteshwara Temple

    Sri Srikanteshwara Temple is one of the highly revered places of worship in Nanjangud. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, this temple is around 23 kilometres away from the city of Mysore. This shrine reflects a flawless combination of the architectural styles of the Gangas, Hoysalas, Cholas and Wodeyars. The gopura (tower), measuring 120 feet in height, is one of the tallest in the state. This 9-storey temple exhibits tucco images and seven gold kalasha (each 3 metres tall) symbolic of the Dravidian style of architecture. Its sanctum sanctorum was built by the Ganga rulers and the mandapa shows influence of the architectural style of Hoysalas.

    According to a mythical tale, during the process of Samudra Manthan, a poison came out that could destroy the world. At that point, Lord Shiva drank the entire poison to save the world. Shocked by this act, His consort Goddess Parvati immediately pressed His neck to prevent the poison from spreading in His body. The venom got stuck in His throat or kanth and that is why He got the name Srikanteshwara, which literally means 'the one with poison in His throat'.

    Sri Srikanteshwara Temple is known for its chariot festivals, namely the Chikka Jathre and Dodda Jathre. Each of these festivals attracts devotees in huge numbers from all over the country. Do plan a visit to this grand temple during one of these festivals to witness the true spirit of devotees.

  • Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple

    Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple is one of Karnataka's largest and most revered shrines. The temple is dedicated to Hindu deity Ranganatha, a manifestation of Lord Vishnu. Within the shrine, there is a colossal image of the deity reclining on Adisesha, which connotes the artistic brilliance of the artisans of the bygone era. An inscription (found in the temple) dating back to AD 894 suggests that the temple was originally built by Ganga Chieftain, Thirumalaiah. Later, Haider Ali, Vijayanagara, Hoysalas and Mysore Wodeyars contributed to the temple.

    The shrine is an exemple of the Hoysala and Vijayanagar styles of temple architecture. It is an imposing structure with a beautifully built gopura or (temple tower) and two huge concentric rectangular prakara (enclosures) around its boundary. The porch that leads to the garbha griha (inner sanctum) features multiple mantapa (columned halls). Other highlights of the temple are a sukhanasi (vestibule), navaranga (hall) and mukha mantapa (front hall).

    Inside the sanctum, one can see a large statue of God Vishnu (with His consort, Goddess Lakshmi) reclining on the snake, Adisesha. Within the temple complex, several smaller shrines dedicated to Hindu deities are there. Some of them are the shrines of Narasimha (an incarnation of God Vishnu), Srinivasa (a manifestation of Lord Vishnu), Gopalakrishna, Garuda and Hanuman.

    Owing to its antiquity, the temple is considered as a historical edifice of national importance according to the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). It forms an intrinsic part of Pancharanga Kshetram (a set of five holy sites), where Lord Ranganatha is worshipped. The town is enclosed by the Kaveri River which in itself is considered to be pious and auspicious. Interestingly, the name of the town has been derived from the holy temple, which stands as a popular pilgrimage centre in the state.
