Situated on the top of a hill about 11 km from Mysore City, the ride to this place offers nice aerial views of the Mysore City. Being a center of pilgrimage, all the stalls selling flowers and other offerings to the goddess lend a colorful atmosphere to the place. It can get crowded on weekends so be careful with your...

Temple is usually quite rush. There's some ticket sort of thing. 30/- for the normal long line. And 100/- for the quick fast line. No matter... More

Local bus service also available there. Temple architecture is good but the problem is that there are 3 types of way to enter into the temple... More

I went with friends and we got the taxi up rather than walking up the steps. Maybe this spoilt the whole experience a little. It is a very nice temple though and definitely worth a visit if you are in Mysore.

During Festival Time there will be Huge rush. You can take 100RS ticket and go in express line still waiting will be there but it is bearable. Inside temple as usual security people will force you to move quickly after watching idol. Out of temple, photographers are present to click your pics and print it at cost of 100-150 INR.... More

Locals as well as outsiders visit. Very peaceful place to visit. Use the stairs to climb the hill. It gives altogether a new experience.

We reached at this temple at around 11am after having our breakfast from the hotel. We parked our car at a triangular place and from there we walked around 250 mt to reach the temple.I went there with my parents-in-law and so paid a special charge of Rs.100 which allowed us to reach to the Devi through a "special bypass...
