Sri Chamundeshwari temple is the most famous temple in Mysore, a city in the Southern state Karnataka. Named after the Goddess Chamundeshwari or Durga, this sanctuary is considered as one of the Shakti Peethas. The sanctuary remains as a wonderful case of the Dravidian design. It has a quadrangular structure. The sanctuary comprises of Main entryway, Entrance, Navranga Hall, Antharala Mantapa, Sanctorum and Prakara. A smooth seven-level Gopura or pyramidal pinnacle remains at the passageway and a Vimana which is a little pinnacle, on the sanctum sanctorum. On the 'Shikara', the pinnacle at the passage, are seven brilliant 'Kalashas'. A little statue of Lord Ganesha remains in the entryway.
The doorway is silver-plated and has the pictures of Goddess Durga in various arrangements on it. fter climbing a couple of stages one sees a flagstaff, the impressions of the Goddess and a little statue of Nandi, confronting the sanctum sanctorum. On the correct side, before moving toward the banner staff, there is a picture of 'Anjaneya', connected to the divider. On either side of this passageway are two Dikpalakas. In the sanctum sanctorum is the stone statue of The Divine Goddess that is beautified each day and is venerated by various ministers.
