Kille Venkataramana Swami Temple

During the time of Tipu, the Mysore Family was still in Srirangapatana. Queen Lakshmammanni, wife of Krishnaraja Wodeyar 2 was deeply worried about the Dynasty and its future. Then Lord Venkataramana is said to have appeared in her dream, and directed her that his statue which is in balamuri should be consecreated in Mysore. By this pious act, her Dynasty would get Salvation.

She therefore, proceeded to Balamuri without the knowledge of the sultan and brought the image of Venkataramana, consecrated it in the temple , and offered continuous worship. This is said to have helped the family and after the fall of Tipu, the Kingdom was restored to the Wodeyar Dynasty.
