It is popular by locals - nothing special to see- the main building was under construction so we couldn't see it - many small shops en road to temple with cheap price to by some statue and handicrafts . Compare to other famous temples in India it is ordinary .

Plenty of Monkeys about who obviously found the rickety scaffolding to their liking but the temple, at dusk, seemed rather drab and disappointing. Perhaps I was jaded at the end of a long trip but there was nothing of note here.

Temple complex is about average but the drive up and down provides some spectacular views and there's quite a pleasant vibe to the hustle bustle surrounding the temple. There's aslo a startlingly clean solar powered toilet comlex courtesy of Mr Sulabh of the International Museum of Toilets in Delhi

Nice temple to see but not recommended to watch on sunny day. Too crowded on weekends but you have to pay for entering in it

When we arrived, this temple was under construction. This could happen but nevertheless it is nothing special for an Atheist Tourist like us. An temple like everywhere else in india. Saw a lot of them...

Our car took us to the top of the Hill where the temple is situated. There are many ornate gods and is a popular destination for pilgrims. Very impressive.

Chamundi Devi is the graama devatey or presiding diety of Mysuru. A must visit on the tourist list, equally popular with locals too. Packed on Tuesdays & Fridays, crowds reach a crescendo during Nav Ratri festival. Located atop a hill, accessible by bus/car. Amenities for visitors can be improved ( toilets, parking, cleanliness etc)
