Sri Chamundeshwari Temple, Mysuru (Mysore)

Visit Sri Chamundeshwari Temple, a temple dedicated to the fearsome Chamunda, an incarnation of Shakti, nestled on top of the towering Chamundi hills. Climb the 1,000 steps that lead up to the hill's summit, or take a drive to the top to reach the temple and admire its Dravidian architectural style.
