The roads in and out of the temple area of Srirangapatna go through these tunnels - through the outer periphery wall. Shows the security of the fort in olden times.

    Shrirangapatna is a beautiful place,unfortunately spoilt by rowdy elements.We visited the Ranganathaswamy temple.We left our footwear in the vehicle.A group of rowdies came over,threw out the footwear and threatened some of the ladies who were in the vehicle,saying the temple is theirs and we need to pay.This has left a bad memory in our minds, I hope the authorities do something about the unruly elements near the temple.There was a small boy who was copying the older rowdy elements.This is a bad influence.
