And finally we went to visit Chamundeswari temple which is situated on Chamundi hill. One can view the whole city from the top of the hill. The temple was named after Chamundeshwari or Durga, the fierce form of Shakti. Chamundeshwari is called by the people of Karnataka as Naada Devathe which means State Goddess. It is said that the hair of Sati Devi fell here. There is a huge granite Nandi on the 700th step on the hill in front of a small Shiva temple a short distance away. This Nandi is over 15 feet high, and 24 feet long and around its neck are exquisite bells. One should wait to glaze the city from top in the night. It's really look shinning star from the top. The Dasara festival in Mysuru completed 408th anniversary in year 2018, while evidence suggests the festivities were observed in Karnataka state by the Vijayanagara Empire kings in the 15th century. The main attraction of the ten-day Mysore Dasara festival is the Mysore Palace which is illuminated daily with nearly 100,000 light bulbs from 7 pm to 10 pm on all days of the festival. Various cultural and religious programs highlighting the dance, music and culture of the State of Karnataka are performed in front of the illuminated Palace. We returned to Bangalore on the same day. You must visit Mysore during Dasara festival.
