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.
