  MYSORE - CHAMUNDESWARI DEVALAYA

As it enjoyed royal patronage in the form of gigantic structures and palatial buildings, its glamour has never worn off, nor status diminished with the passage of centuries. Even the sophisticated glitter, or its craze for western dazzle hasn't robbed off its intrinsic grandeur. Ironically, the mod culture has enhanced its splendour to a million fold unknown to itself; it is from here Mother Chemundeswari fought and got freedom for the victims of Mahishasura, and has been abiding since then extending eternal vigilance for the welfare of whole nation. An axiomatic truth testified by historical evidence and inscriptional proof.

It has many more unique that placed it at the highest pedestal for soulful veneration; for it is here the Wodeyars - the former rulers of Mysore state built and renovated the majestic temple of Mother Chamundeswari besides grand palaces for their dwelling; it is here Marbaleswar was adored with unusual ardor by Hoyasala and Vijayanagara rulers; it is to this shrine the enlightened muslim king Hyderali made endowments and stopped animal sacrifice to the presiding deity, making it most adorable by all sections of people; it is this deity adored as the Kuladaivam of the Wodeyars; it is to this temple a former prince built a flight of steps for public convenience.
