Chamundi Hills

The Chamundeeswari temple is located on a hill in the vicinity of Mysore and is accessed through a motorable road. This 1100 seated auditorium has a shape of a gigantic violin. It's architecture is marvelous. Halfway-up is the Nandi Bull, a 4.8 m monolith. Right on top is the 2000-year-old Brindavan Gardens 19 km northwest of Mysore is the KRS Dam and the ornamental Brindavan Gardens. The musical fountains and colorful lights transform this palace into fairy land in the evenings. It is fairly strenuous climb but you get really wonderful view of Mysore city and surrounding countryside.

The temple counts as an especially artistic and well preserved master piece of the Hoysala Dynasty-Ruler Narasimha III. The three shrines which are consecrated to different aspects of Lord Vishnu have been laid out in a star shape and stand in a rectangular court area, with exquisite ornamental border decorations depicting scenes from the Indian epics. A flight of one thousand steps built by the Maharaja Dodda Devaraja in 1659 also leads up to the summit of the hill which is at a height of about 3000 feet.
