My all time favourite place to visit in Mysore. Well maintained. Great view of city from atop the hill. Good road. Pleasant drive. Tip: Policemen posted there help you jump the queue for 50 rupees.

The drive to the top is always enjoyable and the view from the top of the hill of Mysore City is really beautiful as well. Had a good darshan of the deity there and felt Blessed

Very crowded and a long queue. Took us a long time. Got difficult for the senior citizens traveling since the queue was long, but moving and no seating provision.

You need to drive up the hills with good vantage points to see the Mysore city. Cars and buses can park close the temple entrance. If you had been other temples in south, there is nothing new on temple architecture. But being deity of Mysore, must visit for first timers. Temple is well maintained and have special entrance fees for... More

This is a beautiful temple build during 12th to 16th Century and depicts the artwork of that period. Initially I heard that we need to climb so many stairs to reach the temple but in fact cars can reach very close through another route and if you indeed want to climb stairs you can do so but it’s not easy...

Climb a top 1200 steps to reach this place!!! Phew. Really worth the visit. Get a good cardio on the way up and a thrill on the way down. The place is kept really clean with the steps being adorned by red and yellow vermilion and jasmine buds. Superb place to spend a morning. Lovely view from the top.

A really interesting place and all are happy for us as none Hindus to visit. We were picked up straight away by someone who decided to be our guide and although he did give us confidence and a lot of history t the end there was a demand for money. Having travelled considerably I was not for being bullied and... More

This place used to be very auspicious for Maharaja of Mysore. They used to take blessing from this temple before every auspicious work. Gopuram structure is very good. This lies on Chamundi hills, which gives a terrific view of Mysore city in the evening. In the night yellow lights seems like gems from this point.
