A walk along the sun rise n the beauty of nature was wonderful. The bull statue below looks great. If you can't walk till the top the vehicle reaches till the top as well. The place was flooding with people even at early 6:30am even when temple timing is 7:30 Am

The temple is a heritage one and you get caught in the devotion that is all around you. We had a very satisfying Darshan and I was totally at Peace. The surrounding areas are quite clean and it was a happy visit.

When we visited (February 15th) the tower was surrounded by scaffolding and green netting - so there was not much to see, but there are plenty of stalls for the ardent shopper and plenty of people to watch.

Myself and a group of 16 visited here in Jan and found it to be truly spectacular. I don't pretend that I even remember half of what I was told, but as somewhere deeply significant both in India and more specifically, Hinduism, you've GOT TO visit. The only two pieces of advice I can offer are 1. go early in... More

If you're a Hindu, this temple should be on your list while in Mysore. Even for non Hindus, this is a fantastic experience travelling up the Chamundi Hill and experiencing the awesome views of Mysore on the way and eventually witnessing the grandeur of Goddess Chamundeshwari atop the hill. It's quite a busy temple with a lot of visitors. So... More

Typical Karnataka temple. Neatly maintained. As it was crowded we took the Rs. 100 entrance ticket. There is also a Rs. 20 option. Parking could be a problem during peak times. We parked on the road side just before entering the main temple area as the traffic was moving so slow that we may miss out very much on time.
