MOTHER CHAMUNDESWARI OF MYSORE

THE TEMPLE COMPLEX

The sacred shrine consecreting the hill with the beautiful image of Mother Chamundeswari is undoubtedly rendering the position of Mysore conspicuous and heightening its glory to enviable degree. Its majestic tower greets the visitors approaching Mysore from all directions, and is visible for miles afar. The temple is quadrangle in shape and has a massive prakara with an imposing Mahadwara, facing the east. There are many mini-shrines and pavillions enshrining the images of Ganesh, Kumaraswamy, Maheswar. The spick and span and eyeful decorations of each niche with multicolored bulbs lift the souls. The beautiful image of the Mother draped in shimmering silks and dazzling diamonds transport the viewers to blissful regions for a while. Among the jewels, the Nakshatramala with thirty sanskrit slokas engraved on it makes the beautiful Mother, more beautiful, and if one rivets his attention on her for a few seconds more she appears most beautiful, the like of which cannot be found anywhere. The priests who offer several kinds of ritualistic poojas are quite solicitous and narrate the stahalapurana and the miracles of the Mother ably and effortlessly on request.
