Brief History of Ranganatha Swamy temple:

In photos you can
see are a Saligrama Moorthy and Saptharishi did the Prathistaparu(Build). The Moorthy's at Srirangam, Srirangapatana and Sri Rangastala all were installed on the same day and same time.
Outside praharam and Gopuram etc were constructed by Vijayanagara Kings. There is a praharam around garbhagriha. If you closely observe you can observe as if the garbhagriham is in the shape of a Bamboo Basket we assume that Sri Ranganatha is in the middle of the basket.
One more interesting story which we got is During Lord Rama's Patabhishekam Vibhishana also co
mes to attend it and in the end Rama presents a Lord Rangnatha's moorthy in Bamboo basket and Vibhishana is compelled to do the Prathistai in Srirangam and to commemorate the occasion the Saptharishi s do the Prathistai of Lord Ranganatha with Bhoo and Neela Devi here in Rangasthala.
SO the Lord appears as if he is in Bamboo basket. The idol of Ranganatha is
four and half feet in length with Bhoo and Neela Devi sitting near the leg. Lord is in Yoga Nidra and his Shesha is spreading his five hoods like a Umbrella. And Vainatheyan is sitting below . In the wall there are Sapthrishis ,Brahma, Ashta Dhikbalakas, Rambha ,Urvashi ,Pancha Ayudham's etc. and it appears as if Lord is in Vaikunta and he is surrounded by all the gods. And All Devatha's etc they are doing Namaskaram to Lord.

The Temple Timings are :

Daily Morning 8.00 Am to 11.00 Pm and Evening 5.30 Pm to 8.30 Pm.

For the first time, I had been to this place today, its a very nice and old temple. Not much crowd was there so, one can spend ample time in the temple. For any pooja to be done, we need to inform the temple priest in advance.

Priest name is Sheshadri Bhattru- 9731442409
