About

Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary also known as Pakshi Kashi (birds paradise) of Karnataka, The sanctuary lies between north latitude 12º 22' to 12º 25’ and east longitude 76º 39’ to 76º 49'  situated 16 km north of Mysore City and 13 Km from Bangalore in Srirangapatna taluk of Mandya district of Karnataka State.  It is the largest bird sanctuary in the state. This sanctuary comprises of SIX Islands and SIX Islets in the river Cauvery. The Islets are the main breeding ground for a variety of local and migratory birds. The comparative isolation of the Islets during the monsoons and the abundance of aquatic insects make Ranganathittu a favorite haunt for birds. The variety of birds at the sanctuary is infinite. The sanctuary attracts a number of tourists both from India and abroad. The Islets are surrounded by water of a reservoir formed by the construction of a weir across River Cauvery. It was built between 1645 & 1648 when Kantirava Narasaraja Wodeyar was the Ruler of Mysore. The sanctuary is just 3 Kms away from the historic town of Srirangapatna, where Tippu Sultan made his last stand against the British in 1799 and was slain in the battle. The soil along the river is soft and loamy, ideal for aquatic insects. The sanctuary is also surrounded by a vast stretch of irrigated agricultural fields where aquatic insects are available in plenty. The abundance of these insects attracts numerous birds to the sanctuary. Ranganathittu island and the islets surrounded by backwater of the weir has been developed and is actively managed as a tourist place. Four islands situated downstream side, about 14 Kms away from Srirangapatna is yet to be developed as a tourist center.
