Good temple but very commercialized. You keep paying money for everything and does not have nything special apart from a good view of the city and Darshana. Nothing great other than that.

I love temples and temple visits and this one in particular was well worth a visit. It is minutes from Mysore centre and the view on the way is also spectacular. You can see the entire city. Go near sunset if possible and walk the steps up :-0

One of the Shaktipeethas and a must visit. The temple is located on top of a hill. One can reach the temple either by steps (around 1200) or by road. There are various tickets for quick darshan. 100, 30 and free.

Bus is available every 30 minutes from City Bus Stop and the way is just so natural. There is a small ghat and the temple is at the top of the hill. The sculpture is wonderful. On weekends, it is over-crowded. One good veg restaurant is on top. The prasad available over there is also very nice and tasty.
