"Clean and powerful temple" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
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.

"Nice temple at hill-top" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
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" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
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.

"Crowded place not well organised"

  • 1.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
No facilities for people, even if you buy 100 Rs ticket, you still have to wait in the hot sun for 1 hour before entering.

The line for people to get in is not properly organized. At the last hall where you can see GOD, is a complete MESS. All lines ending outside the door step and you are literally in a wrestling area in front of the GOD. Small children can seriously be injured if not properly cared.

And there are notices saying "pickpockets are here, take care of your belongings", including in the hall where GOD Chamundi is in.

Mysore Chamundi Hills is a holy place of devi and it is very high from sea level and the nature in hills is cool. Good ventilation and natural beauty. Nice place to visit and to get the blessing of Devi Chamundeshwari.

Again a very beautiful temple with worth watching architecture. One can carry his camera with him, excellent place to visit with very calm atmosphere. You will miss something if not visited.

"Small and Beautiful temple"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted Jan 7, 2015
Important temple of Mysore. Quite decent management of crowd. Very cool and divine feel inside the temple. Lots of shops around selling snacks, gifts, and flowers. The colorful Mahishasura statue in front of the entrance path is a photo location for tourists. Must see temple.

"Needs improvement"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted Jan 3, 2015
Too much confusing to get into darshan. Display board should be in English or other regional languages. Too many vendors around getting on visitors nerves along with the monkeys.
