Chamundi Hill - 8 Sept







The view from the top of Chamundi Hill was fantastic. You can see the whole of Mysore. There are two temples at the top of the hill. Some flowers with a small wooden Ganesh was thrusted into my hands just before I entered the temples. This guy says it was offerings and it was free. Naive that I was, I took the flowers. The guy then took me on a tour of the temple, claiming to be a temple worker. Needless to say, at the end of the tour, in a quiet corner of the temple, he said that the flowers and the wooden statues cost 2,000 rupees (1,000 rupees per temple). Rather than arguing in the temple, I gave in and treated this expense as tuition money on how to handle similar situations in the future.
