Rituals at Srirangapatna

Rituals at Sreerangapattanam

Srirangapatna (also spelt as Srirangapattana) is a small town in Mandya district of Karnataka, 19 kms away from Mysore. The entire town is surrounded by river Kaveri.
The Paschima Vaahini section of the Kaveri at Srirangapattana is considered especially sacred. People come from far and wide to immerse the ashes of the departed and perform obsequies to their ancestors in these waters.
Ammas ashes were immersed in this river.

There were many others who came to do the same. It was rainy season and the water thus was clean and good flow and whirlpools were there in plenty.
