The Chamundeshwari Temple is a Hindu sanctuary situated on the highest point of Chamundi Hills around 13 km from the royal residence city of Mysore in the territory of Karnataka in India. The sanctuary was named after Chamundeshwari or Durga, the wild type of Shakti, a tutelary divinity held in worship for quite a long time by Mysore Maharajas. The Chamundeshwari Temple is considered as a Shakti Peetha and one among the 18 Maha Shakti Peethas. It is referred to as Krouncha Pitham as the area was referred to in Puranic circumstances as Krouncha Puri. The unique place of worship is thought to have been worked in the twelfth century by Hoysala rulers while its pinnacle was presumably worked by the Vijayanagar leaders of the seventeenth century. In 1659, a flight of one thousand stages was developed prompting the 3000 foot summit of the hill. At the sanctuary are a few pictures of Nandi the bull mount of Shiva. There is an enormous rock Nandi on the 800th step on the slope before a little Shiva sanctuary a short separation away. This Nandi is more than 15 feet high, and 24 feet long and around its neck are dazzling ringers.
