Srirangam Hotels

    Srirangam hotels are present around the temple.  We can see lot of small hotels here.  Variety of star hotel is near the Trichy railway junction.  It is about 7km from the Srirangam Temple.  During the festival time we have to book the hotel and come because of large crowd.

Sri Ranganathaswamy temple Srirangam is surrounded by the river cauvery’s water on one side and its tributary kollidam on the other side.  It is an island town with 600 across.  This is enclosed within the seven rampart walls of the gigantic Sri Ranganatha swamy temple.  The complex of this temple is 156 across in extent.  There are 21 magnificent towers in all prakaras providing a unique sight to any visitor.
Sri Ranganatha swamy is called as Boologa Vaikuntam.  After many invasions by Moghal Kings, this temple still stands without losing its beauty and fame.  Sri Ranganathar is the main deity of this temple and the Ranganayaki is the Goddess.
In 108 Divyadesams, Srirangam is considered as the first and foremost important one.  During the Bhakthi movement the saint poets of Tamil Nadu sang verses in praise of Lord Vishnu.  These songs are sung by Alwars.
