A visit to Pandavpura is 'recommended' to all tourists travelling to Srirangapatna. Situated amid two hills made of rocks, this town got its name because the Pandavas, the heroes of the epic Mahabharata, stayed here for a while. As per the legends, it is believed that during their exile, the Pandavas halted at this town and their mother Kunti liked the place.
The town got itself the name 'French Rocks' during the pre-independence era because the Frenchmen who came to aid Tipu Sultan against the British used it as a camping ground. Pandavpura is bound with beautiful paddy and sugar cane fields, which add to the charm of the place. As agriculture is the main occupation of the people of this town, tourists can see various agricultural products, ayurvedic products and handiworks while passing through Pandavpura.
