    Tipu Sultan and his Mysore roots. Srirangapatna : History calling me.
    Mysore is known for a lot of things and in all those things one of the main names that comes up is Tipu Sultan. I took a short trip to Mysore from Bangalore and went to the city of Srirangapatna, one of the most historically important cities of this country !

    A river island ! Revisiting historical places !
    Located near the city of Mysore, Srirangapatna is among the popular tourist places in Karnataka, owing to its cultural, religious and historic importance and also one of the top places to visit in Mysore. The entire town is surrounded by the river Kaveri to form a river island.

    The ghats of Srirangapatna ! The spiritual flow of Kaveri. India's river stories !
    This island is sprinkled with numerous historic and religious monuments. The spiritual sanctity of its religious landscape saddles beautifully with the nostalgic air of its valor past and is one of the main sites of Hindu religious pilgrimages in the country !

    The Ghats without crowds & noise.Reconnecting with spirituality.Finding faith.
    Northern ghats of Banaras and Rishikesh have become too mainstream and crowded for any kind of spirituality now and this was a refreshing and welcome change for my conscience. The mundane simplicity of religion here made me truly believe it is for everyone & anyone who has faith.

    Nuances of a city. Beautiful architecture !!
    Apart from all the history that surrounds this island city, also known as the capital itself of Tipu Sultan, the city has enough of its individual nuances and colours. The vibrance and energy that this place carries is extraordinary and the architecture is astounding !

    City landmarks ! The places of faith.
    The landmark tourist spot in the centre of the city, holding it together and bringing people back to their past is Sri Ranganathaswamy temple. Exquisite distinct architecture and sculpture work is only one of its defining elements as well as holding great religious significance.

    The religious history of this city dates back to 9th century AD when the Ganga dynasty ruled this region from their capital at Talakkadu. They built the Sri Ranganathaswamy temple in this island, hence the name Srirangapatna. The Kaveri river adds essentially to its religiosity.

    The story of Tipu Sultan. The grave of a warrior.
    The final battle of Tipu Sultan, "Siege of Seringapatam", was fought in this island. After a long siege the fort of Srirangapatna was breached. Tipu Sultan was killed in the pitch battle that followed the siege. After the fall of Tipu, the city lost its significance as a capital.

    This grave is a Muslim mausoleum at the centre of a landscaped garden, holding the graves of Tipu Sultan, his father Hyder Ali and his mother Fakr-Un-Nisa. It was originally built by Tipu Sultan to house the graves of his parents and then sheltered him as well.

    Flowing with Kaveri river.Reconnecting with nature.
    This beautiful city not only holds significant historical landmarks but also shelters one of India's much loved rivers. The tender and soothing flow of Kaveri can be felt bringing calm cool peace to your mind and sitting by the riverside for a moment puts me back in nature.

    Escaping from heat into nature.Exploring aerial wildlife.
    Since we had extra time, after a careful tour of the historical city, we hoped on to this bird sanctuary to roam amidst nature, escape the heat that has started to grow and experience a little wildlife. It was a great idea !

    Since boating at the time was closed, we simply walked around the sanctuary, trying to spot birds we hadn't seen before and enjoying the shade and the landscape. For some time it felt like we had entered a while another place and left the city of the past, in the past !

    Soothing the senses through water.Noisy aquatic animals.
    I always feel so cool, calm and relaxed whenever I'm around a water body. Its like a personal sensory reflex for my body, but water does soothe or senses like nothing else. These ducks on the other hand, were extremely rude and noisy !

    What's a good journey without a good hearty meal and we received one on the traditional "pattals" made of Banyan trees in villages and local parts of south India. The flavours were as delicious and warm as the emotions behind such good food.
