We continued our journey around 5.45 p.m.There was no hot sunlight. Chamundi hills are one of the major pilgrimage sites as there is Chamundeswari Temple situated at the top of the hill. The temple dedicated to the goddess Chamundeshwari or Durga. The temple premises was crowdy. We walked around the temple and sat down on the steps behind the temple. The architecture of the temple was impressive.
3. Chamundeshwari TempleA lovely temple of goddess Chamundeshwari, located nowhere but on Chamundi hills, is a major tourist attraction. You can expect a huge queue on weekends to get into the temple, but if you want to save the hassle and time, you can buy the special entry ticket from the counter outside the temple.
Chamundi Temple: The Chamundi or Chamundeshwari Temple is one of the most famous temples in Karnataka dedicated to Devi Chamundeshwari. This 1000 years old temple is considered as one of the Shakti Peethas, located on the top of 3000 feet high Chamundi Hill and can be reached by climbing 1000 plus stairs
After reaching at Chamundeshwari Temple we directly went for photo shoot only because of lot of crowd in temple. But that place is the best one for street photography. There is one another spot where one scene of “Rab ne bana di jodi” were shoot, when SRK proposed to Anushka by switching off that city lights.Street Photography
Sri Chamundeshwari temple:Holy pilgrimage.Trek through 1008 stairs to summit.Nandi statue along the way.Panoramic view of the city.After standing in a queue, I got inside and sat there for sometime with a blank mind and heart full of calmness. I left the temple looking at the architecture, the way they constructed the temple in the era where they didn't have much technology or automation around. I came out of the temple and went towards a statue of bimasasura. Then when I thought of leaving the place I searched if there is anything nearby. There were steps to come to temple from down to hilltop and a huge nandi statue in the middle. I decided to take the steps to go down atleast till nandi statue.I started stepping down the stairs and after some time I got to a point where I could see the Mysore city sitting on rocks. I took a break there and sat looking around feeling the cool breeze and birds flying and sitting on nearby trees around me. The view was amazing and it was cloudy. I kept going down and after some walk I got to see the huge nandi statue. I took a break and sat down nearby looking at the statue and people taking selfies with the statue. I was looking at a dog which was in its own dreams amidst the crowd and the noise.I thought to take some more steps to look around but it was nothing but a way in the middle of lush green trees. After some walk I got near a road which divided the steps to go up or down. I saw an old man with a beard and a big bag filled tightly. He was talking to himself and I was quite interested to see what he was up to. I sat down opposite to him to the other side of the road. After some self talk with himself loudly while I was talking with myself in my brain he started going down as I was thinking to go up and get a bus. I looked at him one last time as I was going up and him going down he suddenly looked back at me and I was confused. So I ran up towards nandi statue where I could get a bus nearby.After waiting for sometime I got a bus which was empty other than driver and ticket collector. The whole bus was mine. Enjoyed the ride down the hill top looking at curvy road and city which was looking like a blueprint on a paper. I decided to get down nearby palace and decided to go to lake nearby but after getting down at the palace I saw that it was open to go inside the palace. So, I decided to go and look at the majesty where the kings lived.
