Other sights in Nanjangud include the 15th century Ragavendra Math, a popular pilgrimage site situated close to the Nanjundeshwara Temple that features the remains of five saints of the Ragavendra sect, and a sacred spot called the Parasurama Kshetra.

Marking the confluence of the Kapila, Kaundinya, and Suvarnavathy rivers, this is where the ancient sage Parasurama is believed to have bathed to cleanse himself from the sin of beheading his mother. Nearby is the Parasurama Temple, which is also a popular pilgrimage spot.
