Situated on top of the Chamundi Hills. The drive to this place is full of beautiful sceneries. At one point you can view the entire city of Mysuru. It also has some sand museum nearby which is also worth the watch.

no dress code. but it is advisable to wear decently as you are visiting a temple, a holy place. any traditional wear is o.k. there is an area to leave your footwear, where you can deposit for a fee of one rupee.
