Many tales of valour and glory are tucked into the folds of the
unassuming island town of Srirangapatna, former capital of one
of the bravest sons of Karnataka. Maybe it's due to the guile of
the beautiful Cauvery River that you tend to lap up every
anecdote the guide narrates.
You tend to believe that the legendary sword of Tipu Sultan,
housed within the State treasury, is sacred and no one dare
touch it. And, if stones could speak, probably every tiny pebble
on the banks of the Cauvery would make the English go red with
reminiscences of Tipu's conquest over the 'Unconquerable
Empire'. The lanes between the turfed outline of the
Srirangapatna Fort bear touching memorials to the life of this
But if you're not too keen on going 'histerical' on a weekend
and need other diversions, Srirangapatna won't let you down. The
drive itself, past the golden rocks on which Sholay was shot and
through the paddy fields of Mandya, is rewarding in itself. It's
not too difficult to find your way around within Sriranga, or to
find what you want most out of your weekend. Cross the river to
enter the town. Turn right for the abode of Lord Ranganathaswamy
and the legend of Tipu Sultan, left to commune with a beautiful
river, the melody of whose movement you will carry in your heart
for a long time to come.
