The word 'Chamundi Betta' at its very mention projects on our mental screen, a little but lovely hillock lying at about 2 km south-east of the fort of Mysore, city, the rest-while capital of the former princely state of Mysore now called Karnataka. It is the most conspicuous land mark, quite visible for miles around Mysore, one of the flourishing capitals called Mahishasurapura, ruled by Mahishasura, a formidable demon in the dim past. This rocky hillock raising to a height of 3489 feet above the sea level with a sacred shrine stop has a glorious past. Its outstanding contribution to the prosperity of the city and the surrounding region is embedded in several legends and countless hymns and songs. The imposing height of its tower and enormous dimensions dominate the landscape around and lend an ethereal charm to the city of Mysore-a corrupt form of Mahishasurapura.

This pretty hill temple etched its glorious image on the pages of legends and history, as many mighty princes emptied their treasuries to sanctify its eminence, dignify, its glory, magnify its topography and beautify its surface with several sculptural embellishments.
