of the main attractions in Mysore - Chamundi Hills, situated
3km southeast of the city, is topped with a temple to the
chosen deity of the Mysore Rajas; the goddess Chamundi,
or Durga, who slew the demon buffalo Mahishasura. It's
a pleasant, easy bus trip to the top; the walk down, past
a huge Nandi, Shiva's bull, takes about thirty minutes.
