My TripAdvisor Review No.206: Sri Chamundeshwari Temple, Mysuru.

“Prominent Temple atop Chamundi Hill.”
4 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 days agoNEW
This huge temple is on top of the Chamundi Hill which is about 13 km from Mysore City.

We visited the temple on a Sunday and it was crowded with a lot of devotees not only from Mysore but from all over India. Chamundi or Durga is another form of the Goddess Shakti, and she is the slayer of many demons, one of which is ‘Mahishasura’ or the buffalo headed monster. You will pass the giant statue of this demon as you approach the temple. The city of Mysore has derived its name from this demon.

There is a good motorable road from Mysore city up to the temple and the views of the city are indeed enchanting as you reach the top. There are regular local buses going up to the top from the city.

There are some more temples like the Mahabaleshwara temple and the Nandi Bull temple nearby which can also be visited together on the Chamundi Hill.
