  • Very powerful goddess Chamundeshwari temple is located at this place. It's very good and well maintained. People from all over the world travel to Mysore and they won't go without visiting this sacred place. Evening's it will be much more beautiful. You get to see the half of Mysore city glowing in light and when u get down near the view point there you get to see another half of the city. Most of the bikers drive simply to top of hill. It's the best place in Mysore to hangout with friends.

  • Very famous temple in Mysore.. Cleanliness is maintained.. plastic free zone.. Has a good viewpoint from hill top! Can see turf club, Mysore palace, and other such huge structures from here. Money makes goddess Darshana easy.

  • This is the best attraction that makes it distinct from the other tourist places in the city. This hill situated 10 kilometers from the center of the city is the beautiful place to get fresh air and an aerial view of the city of Mysore. Also pleasant for devotees who can come visit the temple located on top.
