We began our sight seeing in Mysore with the famous Chamundeshwari temple. As we didn't have much of time our travel itinerary had only 3/4 main places to visit within the city. We decided to cover the Mysore zoo, Mysore, temple and the Chamundeshwari temple mainly. However there are other places like the Brindavan gardens, St. Philomena's Cathedral and sand/wax museum which can be visited.
Situated over Nandi hills, this temple is beautiful with intricate carvings. The route towards the temple is uphill with majestic views. It was treat to watch the sunrise over Nandi hills, also the panoramic view of the entire Mysore city was worth watching.
Things to remember
Don't buy any VIP ticket inside the temple because you might regret it later.
From preists inside to flower vendors outside the temple everybody asks for money. So beware and avoid that.
There are many small shops selling memoirs just outside the temple.
