MOTHER CHAMUNDESWARI OF MYSORE

In the inner prakara the statues of Krishna Raja Wodeyar III with his queens in standing posture are installed and the workmanship is quite commendable. The sculptural adornments found on the walls and ceiling are remarkable for their craftsmanship and maintenance. The descendants of those illustrious patrons made beautiful additions including a palace for their stay. And it is grand externally and internally. The flight of stone steps numbering one thousand built by Dodda Deva Raja around 1659 is maintained well with tube lights all along and is used by old and young alike, though there is a motorable road laid out for vehicles plying to and fro round the clock. On the way to the temple, there is a colossalfigure of Nandi about 16  feet in height and it is on par with its counterparts found in Brihadeeswaralayam and Nataraja temple in Tamil Nadu. Its gigantic size, couchant posture and adornments of trappings and bells are superb and the artistry of the stone cutter detains longer. It is a grand feast to connoisseurs and visual treat to the devotees.
