Visited in the morning and there were huge crowds of worshipers here already dressed in their best. Walking through the crowds was like walking through a rainbow. I did not realize at the time that I could have just spent 100 Rs to skip the line so I stayed outside. Even just outside it was amazing. I had an amusing encounter here, as I was walking away, a boy in a strange costume and makeup began to dance around me. At the time I had no clue what he represented. Later I saw the same character in a 7-Up commercial and learned that it was Kathakali. I probably looked just as puzzled as the girl in the commercial! After the temple I took a side trip to the huge Nandi on the steps up from the city below.

Good place with good sight-seen, the road to the temple is really good. one can have a full view of mysore city, mysore palace, mysore race course etc. The temple I personally believe is now become a commercial area, you can visit the temple after waiting for an hour or you can just spend Rs 100 per person with out waiting in a queue. and this place is little crowdy.

Good place as a sightseeing spot but highly commercialised place as a temple. If you want to have a VIP darshan you need to shell out Rs. 100/- per person. I heard from local they had started recently. Not bad as a concept :) because to be honest I would have avoided the temple if there was no concept of VIP darshan with my kid & wife because of unbearable crowd.

The road up to the temple gives you several views over looking the valley. The temple has some wonderful architecture. And it has a few monkeys climbing around as well. Be prepared to take off your shoes like most temple places in India.
