Temple on Nangangud road

Temple on Nangangud road


This lovely city will cover you up under a spell of sandalwood as soon as you set foot in it. Besides that, it is also the paradise for incense lovers. Whatever sort of scent you're looking for, there is a vendor stall thats sells it. What Varanasi is to the north of India when it comes to silk, Mysore is to the south. Several streets are lined with silk emporia where you can buy nice pieces of silk and then you can go to a tailor and let them have a go at it.

The city offers many markets, the Maharadja's and the Jaganmoham Palace (with an excellent painting section) and some good museums. The Maharadja's palace is nicely lit on sunday evening between 7 and 8 o'clock.

 It might be a nice option to spend a morning or afternoon climbing up Chamundi Hill. Famous rock cuttings and temples along the way make this climb even worth more the effort. For the more lazy tourist you can also take a taxi, bus or rickshaw up the hill and walk down.

In the neighbourhood you have several nice places to visit, like Somnathpur, which has an impressive temple complex.
