15 Things To Do In Mysore In One Day, Mysore Attractions Tourist Places And Itinerary

The one day tour of Mysore starts at morning 8 am, from your desired location (your residence, hotel, bus stand or Railway station). Our cab will pick you up and begin the tour.
The first place to be visited in Mysore One day trip will be the Chamundi Hills.

1. Chamundi Hills

After your pick up, our driver will take you to one of the most sacred places of Mysore, located about 10 kms from the City. It will be a commute of 25 minutes. The speciality of the hill is that no matter which side of Mysore you look at it from, it looks like a demon is sleeping. The locals believe that the demon is none other than Mahishasura.

You can also see a palace near the abdomen region of the demon; the palace is called as Rajendra Vilas Palace. This palace is owned by the Wodeyars, the royal family of Mysore. Public and tourists are not allowed in the premises of the palace.

The sacred hill is at a height of 1000 meters from the sea level. En route, you’ll get to stop at Mysore viewpoint from where you can have a mesmerizing view of the city. During the weekends and Government holidays, the lighting at the Mysore Palace in the evening is a feast for the eyes.

From there, our vehicle will proceed to the parking area of the temple where one can locate a huge statue of Mahishasura, it is a great spot for tourists to take selfies and photographs. From there, at a walkable distance comes the Gopuram of the temple. It’s interesting to know that this historic temple was built during 1659 B.C. After the darshan of Goddess Chamundeshwari proceed to Nandi statue and temple. This statue of Nandi is carved in one single stone and it is believed to be growing day by day.

Oh, and don’t forget to taste a delightful sugarcane juice with the hint of lemon.
