The temple is great, also behind the main temple, there is Shiv Lords Temple & one more temple. It is worth the travel. Best time to go there is night time due to lesser crowd in comparison to the morning crowd.

Its an excellent temple to visit if you are in Mysore. Please be aware that it will be crowded all round the year so be prepared for it. Please be careful of your belongings including kids.

This goddess is a blessed form of the shakti who is famous for killing the evil doers and Demons. A beautiful idol on top of the mountains. A 1 hour drive from Mysore by a city bus takes you to the temple. Evening Darshans start only at 7.30 p.m. You have a Shiva Temple and Ranganathar to view by the... More

The priests & locals literally extort money from you. They sell you things without your will. They charge you for breaking a coconut. They ask you money directly for any service, which is not supposed to be done in a godly, holy place. Dont accept freethings at temple enterance, they will ask you to pay at exit. We fell for...
