HolidayIQ Reviewer Ruta Muley shares, “This mesmerizingly beautiful Sri Chamundeshwari temple is situated as a glorious crown atop the crest of the towering Chamundi Hills some 13 kilometres from the charming city of Mysore. ...As one gently walks towards the main entrance of the Devi Chamundeshwari temple, This temple is venerated a one of the Shakti Peeth, having its deep roots in Hindu mythology. In the Puranas, the Shakti Peethas are described as places where the body parts of Sati's corpse fell when enraged and unnervingly grief-struck Lord Shiva began Tandav Nritya across the earth holding Goddess Sati's lifeless body in one arm and his frightening trident in the other hand, in sorrow after her immolation in the sacrificial fire of her father Daksha's yagna. ...The temple has been built in a quadrangular manner.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Anup Viswanathan Thampi says, “Richest temple, not for display I have been living in Thiruvananthapuram (meaning Ananthan City, named after The God Maha Vishnu or Ananthan). The temple rose to fame after claims saying it is the richest temple. Before that, we could go to the temple without any security checks or timing issues or be waiting in the long queue where people are anxious to see the riches. After finishing the inside of the temple it would be good to take a stroll to the sideways of the temple wall (outer area) that way you can see the other 3 entrances of this magnificent temple. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Satish Tripathi adds, “Memorable and informative Previously there was a small shrine at this place, but now a new temple has been built at the same place. According to scripture, Rama broke the Setu(bridge) by one end of His Dhanush (bow), hence this place was known as Dhanus- Koti. There is very important and historical seashore in front of the temple. ...This picture is displayed inside the temple. ...View of the sea, in front of the temple, is very scenic and signifies that Setu/Bridge was built from this place to Lanka, by floating stones, put in the sea by Nal and Neel.” Read Full Review

This temple turned out to be the most satisfying part of this complex for me. But before, going into details about this endearing temple. Decoding these inscriptions led to the discovery of a temple inside the modern-day cave complex. Many consider these to be one of the seven pagodas on the Mahabalipuram coast.” Read Full Review
