Located strategically at a mere 15 km drive by road from the Palace City of Mysore, a trip to Srirangapatna makes its visitor relive the days of valor and gallantry. The relics of Srirangapatna with its temples, palaces, tombs, military warehouses, cenotaphs, splendid landscape and above all its three layer fort wall with bastions are a must see on the Bangalore-Mysore highway!
Srirangapatna, an egg shaped island enclosed by the river Kaveri and the historic capital of Tipu Sultan, is sprinkled all across with temples symbolic of the British rule. This town derives its name from the much celebrated Ranganathaswamy Temple, making it one of the most prominent Vaishnavite pilgrimage centers in South India. The place which brought on early reforms in the field of business and social life and took a lead in introducing the early inventions or rocket technology, is a prominent destination in the World Map of Tourism.

Many tales of valour and glory are tucked into the folds of the unassuming island town of Srirangapatna, former capital of one of the bravest sons of Karnataka. Maybe it’s due to the guile of the beautiful Cauvery River that you tend to lap up every anecdote the guide narrates. You tend to believe that the legendary sword of Tipu Sultan, housed within the State Treasury, is sacred and no one dare touch it. And, if stones could speak, probably every tiny pebble on the banks of the Cauvery would make the English go red with reminiscences of Tipu’s conquest over the ‘Unconquerable Empire’. The lanes between the turfed outline of the Srirangapatna Fort bear touching memorials to the life of this unique king.

But if you’re not too keen on going ‘histerical’ on a weekend and need other diversions, Srirangapatna won’t let you down. The drive itself, past the golden rocks on which Sholay was shot 35 years ago and through the paddy fields of Mandya, is rewarding in itself. It’s not too difficult to find your way around Sriranga. Cross the river to enter the town. Turn right for the abode of Lord Ranganathaswamy and the legend of Tipu Sultan, and left to commune with a beautiful river, the melody of whose movement you will carry in your heart for a long time to come.
