The road is winding and uphill that takes you all the way to the Mother Goddess Chamundeswari temple. The drive is fitting and uplifts you as well. A good visit and a wish fulfilled. Shouldn't miss it. Apart from the cacophony and crowd surrounding a public place especially a temple, go for your own reasons and get the 'darshan' and... More

Chamundeswari is the family goddess of the Mysore royals. Its on Chamundi hills, the temple itself is in use. There is also a Nandi (2nd largest) on Chamundi hill a couple of kilometers from the temple. Also from the hill one can get a birds eye view of the Mysore city.

I have visited this Hindu temple couple of times. This is situated on mountain near to Mysore. As soon as you start climbing, cool breeze can be felt. You can have nice view of mysore city from the top.

Best time to visit in the early morning. One could get a feel of awesome reflection of sun rays on top of the temple. On the way plan to visit Nandi temple which is around few KM from here.

Another temple, nothing much actually but the ride up the hill is great with awesome views of Mysore town. The statue of Mahisasura is interesting, otherwise the area is as usual crowded with shops selling snacks and temple offerings. Lots of bonnet macaques around though they seem harmless. Birders can enjoy swifts nesting on the temple crevices!

This is a beautiful temple set atop a hill. you can hike to the temple alternatively you can take a vehicle to the temple. However the long queue to see the Goddess is disturbing.
