About Chamundi Hills Chamundeshwari Temple:

The foundation of the Temple is as old as 12th century whereas its tower is about 300 years old. The seven story temple has a 40 metre high ‘gopuram’ decorated with intricate carvings. The unique feature of the temple is that the idol of the Goddess is made of solid gold. Temple gates are made of silver. The temple is also believed to have a jewel Nakshatra-Malike which has the inscriptions of 30 Sanskrit shlokas on it. Another major attraction of the temple is a 16-foot-high statue of demon Mahishasura installed near the temple. The reason behind is that it was goddess Chamundeswari (Parvati) who killed demon Mahishasura and protected the area and hence Devi Chamundi is also affectionately called as the Goddess of Mysore. The word ‘Chamundi’ literally means ‘terrible’ and it is the other name for Parvati, who assumed an angry mood to kill the demon.
