If I am allowed visiting only one place in or around Mysore during t=my next visit, it will be definitely Chamundi Hills... Of course for the worshipers of Goddess Chamunda it is a holy place, But for all of us this is an extremely amazing place. I suggest all to visit this place only in the early evening and to... More

We have been to the place so many time, and every time we feel the same thrill - the view of mysore from the top of the hill. The best time to visit the temple in afternoon, When the sun is setting, down the hill as the city is light up, that view is mesmerizing! The temple has free darshan... More

Best way to reach is take volvo bus from city bus stand. Once on top of the hill walk between the shops on either side and reach the temple complex. Before that there is statue of Mahishasura. One round around view of Mysuru from top will give an Eagles Eye view. All the four sides one can see how the... More

Sacred place to visit with good view of the city from the top as this place is in a small mountain. It's too crowded on special occasions and on Fridays but you can do the darshan quick with the special entry tickets.

During a day trip to Mysore a colleague and I visited Chamundi Hills where a grand temple hid behind a row of local shops. I ventured inside amongst many worshipers which was eye opening. You can really sense the history in the walls. Be prepared to queue (I went in late afternoon) and walk bare foot. Not a problem as... More

We did a bike trip to the top of chamundi hills to reach the temple. Though there is nothing out of the blue about the temple its the view and the weather which makes this place popular. Beware of the monkeys though!!

There are not very many temples on top of mountains where a great walk is possible within an hour and not very crowded. Since most visitors take buses and personal vehicles to climb by road, walkway is less crowded, free of beggars, and clean too. You can also climb with your chapels on which is really important if it is... More

This is the only hill in mysore and you don't have to go far from main city to this place, in fact, it is in city itself. That makes it great because you can see the whole of Mysore from this place. You can visit this with friends, families or even solo. And there is a temple atop the hill... More
