My first stop in Mysore was Chamundeshwari Temple, which is actually located in Chamundi Hills some 8 miles from Mysore. The location also affords a panoramic view of Mysore, which is one of its many attractions.
Unlike my visit to Chennakesava Temple, which appears to be more of a historic site, Chamundeshwari is a very active Hindu temple. The architecture is worthwhile, and the main building looks like a skinny pyramid with elaborate carvings, but it didn’t impress me as much as the historic Chennakesava. Instead, it was the street life, vendors, and brightly dressed attendees that attracted my attention.
In today’s photo, you can see the main building in the background, but it’s the women’s vivid colored clothing that I really like. In upcoming posts, I’ll feature street photography and the awesome color from this place. Before I do, however, I’m going to show a little wildlife in tomorrow’s post. Something that I don’t see very often.
