The city of Mysore offers many places of tourist attractions and Prasanna Krishnaswamy Temple being one of them. Built during 1825-1829 by the Maharaja of Mysore, Krishnaraja Wodeyar III, the temple features an enclosure or Prakaram and Navaranga or the central pillared hall. It is believed that Wodeyar dynasty of Mysore is the descendents of Yadu Vashna, thus the temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna, founder of Yadu dynasty.

The temple houses more than 40 bronze statues of deities and saints which were presented by Krishnaraja Wodeyar III. Within the temple there is a small shrine dedicated to sage Atri, the gotra-rishi of the Wodeyar dynasty. The image of the main deity, Lord Krishna in the sanctum sanctorum is made of chlorite schist.

One can always visit Prasanna Krishnaswamy Temple during Krishna Janmashtami celebration as it is very well known and during this celebration a religious procession is held from this temple. Devotees and visitors can always participate in this procession.
