  • The outside of the temple was in the restaurant when we went, but continues to ambulation and offerings to the deities. It's worth the joy of visiting the inside, a moment of sometimes intense spirituality. Ideally, it's going down the chamundi hills by 1000 markets, you'll meet the Bull of shiva and you will offer you beautiful views of the city. Markets are also beautiful since the pilgrims bless them by marking of kumkum powder. Very beautiful!

  • It was an easy drive to the hill top temple. It just took 15 minutes for the darshana and it was good. The ramp that was setup opposite garbha gudi was very helpful.
