Chamundeshwari Temple History

Once upon a time monster, Mahishudu was grate blessed with the blessings of Lord Brahma. With that blessing, 1000 soldiers will be born from each blood drop on the ground. With that, he began to suffer the deities and saints.

While all the gods prayed to Goddess Parvati, she wears a Chamundi incarnation and goes out to war to kill to Mahisha. She wore a large form and kept her tongue lying on the ground. With that, the Mahish was forced to stand on that nucleus and fight. Mahisha was killed in the hands of Chamundeshwari Devi because he did not have to let the blood of the drops of the blood from the earth. From that point onwards, this name is known as “Mahishapuram” and known as Mysore over time. There is a 16 feet height and a 25 feet tall statue of Nandi.

Earlier the Chamundi Temple was very small. The Maharishi of Mysore has greatly expanded this temple. Previously, there were murders and animal sacrifices in this temple. But these sacrifices were banned after the 18th century. There is a statue of Chamundeshwari Devi with gold in this temple. The gates of the temple are made of silver. In 1927, Maharaja Krishna Devaraya Wadiyar rebuilt this temple and built an unprecedented gopuram.

He also presented a portrait called “Simhavahanam” to make Mothers a procession. The Dasara Festival is celebrated for 10 days. These 10 days are the most luxurious. The Dagara celebrations will be held on the occasion of the Ashwija Pournami. The boat festival is also celebrated on the same day. This program will be a large number of people.
