Chamundi Hills - Review

These eight hills are among the most sacred in the country. Legend has it the the eponymous goddess once defeated the demon Mahishasura here, and was consequently enshrined. There’s a lovely temple dedicated to her on one of the hills. The hills offer a panoramic view of the area surrounding Mysore and one can see the Mysore Palace, the race course and a couple of lakes. 1008 steep steps will lead you to the top of the main hill and you’ll pass a 16-foot tall statue of Nandi the Bull, Gatekeeper and Mount to Shiva and Parvati. The temple on this hill are a popular pilgrimage destination.

Chamundi Hills, Mysore Reviews

  • A place of great historical importance... Good place to visit.. Would recommend to visit the place early in the morning and witness sunrise.. Beware of monkeys.. It is better not to feed them... In day time the rush is too much...

  • Night time best hangout spot, especially if you arrived to Mysore same day evening like me. The view point's official lookout spot closes at 10pm but you can park your vehicle somewhere near that lookout with a clear view of the city. Know this that there ain't no parking spot available somewhere other than the official lookout spot so you gotta park somewhere safely at your own risk with parking lights on and enough space for one car to pass through overtaking your parked vehicle.

  • This place is so beautiful that you just can't get enough out of it, whether you're traveling with family or you're going for a bike ride up the hill, this place offers more than you can expect, so whether it's a casual getaway or a humble visit for offering your prayers in the stunningly beautiful and serene temple, this should be in your list without any questions or doubts. The view of the city while watching the sunset from the top of the hill is breathtakingly gorgeous. There are a range of shops on the hill as well so if you may feel like buying some snacks, you can get them as well.

  • Good place. Will be too crowded 95% of the times. Early morning is the best time to visit. Roads to reach top is good for bikers to enjoy the ride

  • Nice view. Magnificent architecture. Calm and peaceful place. Monkeys are there in the premises to entairtain you­čśÇ. Road to temple is also a nice journey. On the way back there is photo point from where you can see the entire landscape of Mysore city. This is nice experience.
