My TripAdvisor Review No.201: Srirangapatna, Mandya District, Karnataka.

“Steeped in History and Surrounded by Natural Beauty.”
5 of 5 bubblesReviewed yesterdayNEW
Srirangapatna is a small town about 15 km from Mysore city in the district of Mandya. The entire town is surrounded by the River Kaveri to form a river island, and encloses the ruins of Tipu Sultan’s Fort.

We had taken a private bus from Mysore for a day of sight-seeing, and Srirangapatna was included just as a drive through in about half an hour. We saw all the monuments but did not alight from the bus to visit them individually. But the sights of Srirangapatna are too good and one can spend the full day, if not more, to visit them.

Some of the monuments we saw in passing were the Ranganathaswamy Temple, Dariya Daulat Bagh (Summer Palace of Tipu Sultan), Tipu Sultan Gumbaz, Wellesley Bridge, Srirangapatna Fort, Bailey’s Dungeon and the memorial at the spot where Tipu Sultan was killed.

The Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary is also located near Srirangapatna.

There are some hotels and lodges located in and around the town. It would definitely be worthwhile to stay longer in Srirangapatna and explore the monuments, ruins and the beautiful natural surroundings around the Kaveri River.
