This is one of the best locations at Mysore; the abode of Goddess Chamundeshwari. Avoid going here on a rainy day or during the afternoon. The temple is closed during the afternoon from 1pm to 4pm. Early morning is the best time to visit. Beware of the monkeys roaming around the place. While going here, do wait fro sometime to... More

This place is what I liked in mysore the most. Make sure you go either in morning or evening so that sorching heat won't make you feel tired. Nice temple carved with various sculptures. The idol of mahishasur will welcome you to this place. Situated on hill top and you can see the entire city of mysore from here and... More

A must visit place in Mysore. The way to Chamundi hills is quite scenic and the mountains provide a good view of mysore. The Gopuram/temple shrine is visible from many places in mysore. Preferably visit during morning by 7am/ eve after 5.30 pm.

Beautiful temple but very busy. No room to breathe or meditate. The other people there (mainly Indians) were pushy and rude. Wandering the outside of the Temple was much more enjoyable. Watch out for Cheeky monkeys though! We walked back down the steps (we got to top via bus) which was peaceful and a beautiful walk.

The location of the temple atop the Chamundi Hill is awesome. The ascent by any vehicle is an enjoyable one. The temple actually is not at the peak of the hill. The famous Mahishasura statue is the first one that welcomes you when you start walking towards the temple.
