More on Sriranganatha Swami temple

ACCORDING TO the locals, the inner sanctum of the Sri Ranganatha temple, in Srirangapatna,  was first built in 817AD by a lass called Hambi, who was a temple dancer.

Sri Ranganatha is a form of Vishnu, and the video below shows the outside (gopura) of the temple, with various pilgrims shuttling backwards and forwards in front of it.
