One can have too many temples in a tour itinerary. We went to this temple because it seems to be the most important temple in Mysore. The Chamundi Hills are sacred to the Hindus so I can imagine people including the temple in their pilgrimage routes.
The temple is a temple and not an attraction for tourist to gawk at. Signs are in Sanskrit and Kannada script used in Karnataka state. There is no information office and tourists just have no choice except to decipher for themselves where they are to go and what they are to do. We joined the free line but were forced out almost rudely when someone saw that we were still wearing our sandals. After we deposited our footwear, we had to join the end of the line again.
I wish I'd read about the 1,000 odd stairs that I could have climbed. I'm sure such a climb would have made our visit more memorable.
A Hindu temple is strange enough as it is. Something in English to tell us about the temple and what we would see inside and within temple grounds would have been helpful. After our visit, I left feeling even more puzzled about the temple and what was going on inside.
