If u go early morning u can climb hill via steps,its an awesome experience & even a good sort of workout. More over that there is a beautiful temple having mythological importance & great belief among Hindu people. During night time the view of Mysore City from top of chamundi hills is fantastic.

It is about 12 km away from Mysore city. It is a good place to spend your evenings. The Camundeswari temple an the Nandi bull are the main attractions there. Try to reach there by evening so that you can enjoy a good evening.

A must visit during the Mysore trip and do not miss the mahanandi. The goddess is believed to be incarnated to kill Mahishasur and that is why it is believed the city carries name Mysore.

The drive uphill is very good and the goddess even more stunning. The positive vibrations can be felt once you are inside the temple. A very good place to be in.
