  MYSORE - CHAMUNDESWARI DEVALAYA

THE TEMPLE COMPLEX:

The sacred shrine consecrating the hill with the beautiful image of Mother Chamundeswari is the principal cause of Mysore's pre-eminence with a hoary legend that heightened its glory to an enviable degree. The temple is quadrangle in shape and has a massive prakara with an imposing Mahadwara, facing the east. There are mini-shrines and pavilions enshrining the images of Ganesh, Kumaraswamy, Maheswar etc. The spick and span and eyeful decorations of each niche with multi-coloured decorations 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 any where. The priests who offer several kinds of ritualistic poojas are quite solicitous and narrate the sthalapurana and the miracles of the Mother ably and elaborately on request. It is a miss not item in the itinerary list of both a tourist or theist to the city of Mysore.
