Srirangapatna is a small town of palaces, forts and temple. The whole town is surrounded by river Kaveri to form a river island. It assumed strategic importance right from the time of the Vijayanagar empire. It was here that the regions of Mysore, Talakad and other regions of South India were overseen. The fort of Srirangapatna held great significance since it was closest fort to the captial city of Mysore during those days. Srirangapatna was the capital of the Mysore empire under the rule of Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan.
The temple is built in honour of Lord Adi Ranganatha, a manifestation of Lord Vishnu. It is one of the five Pancharanga Kshetrams along the river Kaveri of Lord Ranganatha. Srirangapatna derives it's name from this temple. It is a popular temple visited by thousands of devotees every year.

Many of Tippu's relatives are buried in the gardens surrounding the structure. This place was renovated in 1855 by Lord Dalhousie, the then Governer General of India.
Situated at the west side of the island, the fort is surrounded by double walls. The point at which British entered the fort by breaking the fort walls is highlighted.
