There is a complex which includes Sri Anantapadmanabha temple, house of Sri Madhavacharya and a temple where an idol of Sri Madhavacharya is placed by Sri Vadiraja. Most of the attractions in this place are connected to Sri Madhavacharya, for example you can see a huge banyan tree which was planted by him as well as four ponds from where he used to take water.
