Trip Planner: Asia / India / Karnataka / Mysore District / Mysuru (Mysore) / Sri Chamundeshwari Temple
Visit Sri Chamundeshwari Temple, a temple dedicated to the fearsome Chamunda, an incarnation of Shakti, nestled on top of the towering Chamundi hills. Climb the 1,000 steps that lead up to the hill's summit, or take a drive to the top to reach the temple and admire its Dravidian architectural style. The temple area can get crowded, but you can enjoy sweeping views of Mysore from 1,173 m (3,489 ft) above sea level.

The place is on a hill top. Very scenic view from up there. Spiritual vibes all around the place. Despite being a tourist spot and a temple at the same time, environmemt is quite clean and peaceful. There are many local handicrafts shops and eating spots you can enjoy. It is quite far from city, and in between dense forest.
A must visit place when you are in Mysore. The temple is beautiful. There is huge huge rush and queue in front of the temple. There are three options to enter the temple. One you can take the free entry, second by paying 30rs and third is the direct entry by paying RS 100. All the three lanes are different. When you visit in peak season all the lanes except the 100rs are fully occupied. Outside the temple there is small market where you can buy souvenir and other things.
