Devoted to worship Lord Ranganath, this temple is at the highest hillock of the BR Hills.
This temple is the only temple in the country where this deity worshipped is depicted in a standing position. The Annual Car festival of the deity held during ‘Vaishakha’ in the month of April, is an event for which the region is very famous and attracts thousands of pilgrims from all over the country. The Ratha festival is a festival which is celebrated with great enthusiasm at Biligiriranga Hills. There is also a very old tradition followed by the local tribes where the local tribes present a large pair of slippers measuring 1-foot (0.30 m) and 9 inches, made up of skin, to the Ranganathaswamy once in two years.
