Things to Do in Mysore

  • Chamundi Temple

    Chamundi Temple, popularly known as Chamundeshwari Temple, is a 12th century shrine situated atop Chamundi Hills, about 13 kilometres away from the Mysore city. A flight of 1000 steps takes visitors to the temple, which is named after Goddess Chamundeshwari or Durga, (the fierce form of Shakti). She is often identified as Parvati, consort of Lord Shiva, and is also the family deity of the Maharajas of Mysore.

    Architecturally, this shrine has a quadrangular structure with lofty gopuram (temple tower) and dwara (entrance), which are visible from a distance. It also consists of a navaranga, sanctum sanctorum, antharala mantapa a prakara. The seven-tier gopuram of the shrine has been constructed in Dravidian style of architecture. Atop the tower or shikara, there are seven golden kalashas that capture attention of every onlooker.

    At the entrance, there is a tower with a small statue of Lord Ganesha. The silver-plated doorway has images of dwarapalakas (door keepers). As visitors enter the temple, they can see a statue of Nandi (the mount of Lord Shiva) facing the sanctum. Within the sanctum, there is a stone idol of Goddess Mahisha Mardhini, featuring eight hands or Ashta Bhujas.

    Many idols and other valuable things of the temple were originally gifted by the rulers of Mysore, who were ardent devotees of Mother Goddess. One of the rulers presented the Simha-vahana (chariot) along with various other valuables. Also, mid-way uphill, near the steps, there is a huge 16 feet tall statue of Nandi that was gifted by Maharaja Dodda Devaraja Wodeyar in 1659.
