"Trip to Chamundi Hills" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 days 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" new review

  • 1.00/7
  • Posted 4 weeks 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.

"Good temple"

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted Dec 28, 2014
The temple was good and had a positive aura about it. The temple was small and not too crowded as is the case with most of the temples in India. The temple can be visited if you can squeeze it in your schedule.

"Good historical place to visit in Mysore"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Nov 19, 2014
Chamundi Hills rises to a height, there is a good motorable road to the top. Bus facilities are available on regular basics to visit the hills. The temple has great antiquity,The idol of the Goddess is decorated everyday and worshipped by a number of priests. The Mysore Maharajas have donated number of valuable gifts to their family deity. Coconuts, fruits and flowers are offered to the deity.
