"Good place for Darshan but quite time-taking" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
It is would be a great experience to take the blessings of Chamundi Mata but one has to stand in a long queue that might take 2-3 hours before entering the main temple premises. Carry umbrellas and water bottles with you.

There are two queues. One for the free darshan and another for paid devotees. It is advisable to go for the paid queue. Perhaps it takes Rs 30 for each entry for the paid queue.

Take care of your belongings while standing in the queue as the queue remains over-crowded most of the time.

The journey up to the temple is a nice experience as the temple is situation at the Chamundi Hills. So one will get a chance to have a look at the whole city while going to the temple.

Don't forget to take snaps while returning back from the temple.

"Totally awesome"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Myself and my friends visited the temple. We had a great experience there. Maintenance was pretty good. Since it is situated on hill top it adds some more beauty to it. Also, it is worth to have a visit with family.

"Hill with a view"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
The temple is so divine on top, this can be assessed both by steps and vehicles. A little few 50 steps down from the top we have a cave temple, Bull Temple. We're you can even shop for stone lamps, stone statues that are souvenirs of this place.

"Awesome Temple at hilltop"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Aug 29, 2015
Chamundeswari Temple is situated at the hilltop, so from city it's around 20 km. Went to this place in bike, so really enjoyed while going round up the mountain. There are lots of viewpoints on the way. In the evening when it was dark I was really amazed to see the Mysore Palace lighting from the top of the hill. The scenic beauty at night cannot be expressed in words. Mysore Palace, Lalitha Mahal and the whole Mysore will make will say 'WOW'!!

If you are going to Chamundeswari Temple don't miss Nandi.

  • Posted Aug 7, 2015
Fine temple with a good grace. It is about 15 km from bus stand. Local buses are available from here. One can see this temple arranged with good flowers at Dasara time. I advise travellers to go to this temple any time.

Temple is very clean and powerful. It is Chamundi Devi's temple, most powerful goddess. Temple is very busy and full of rush. My family and I were very happy to visit it.

Very widely known pilgrimage in Mysore. This Devi temple has normal darshan as well as a priority darshan queue. There is arrangement of pooja. You can buy the stuff from outside the Temple. Also you can buy prasadam from temple outlet.

"Trip to Chamundi Hills"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jul 2, 2015
A drive along the Chamundi hills was very relaxing. We left the hotel by 6. 30am, and being December, the climate was very cool and refreshing. And the steps taking you to the temple was slightly tiring though, especially for elderly people. One of the poojari (Adigas) was very helpful who ensured us a very darshan in front of the deity. On return had a stop at 'Nandi' statue.
