If you are looking for historic places to go in Mysore, you will find plenty of them such as the 11th century temple atop Chamundi Hills. Reaching the temple is not easy as one has to climb 1000 steps to reach it. The beauty of the surroundings is quite mesmerising and worth the trip. The Chamundi Hills are located 13kms away from Mysore. The temple’s architecture is quite unique and has a 7-tiered gopuram with 7 golden kalash displayed on top. The temple is dedicated to Goddess Durga.
