The ancient Mahabaleshwar Temple in Chamundi Hills is one place to see while visiting Mysore. The Ganga Kings constructed this temple in 8th century AD and later on it was renovated by Hoysala Kings. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and the idol possessed by the temple is believed to be of Chola period, thus very popular during Ganga, Chola and Hoysala period.

The architecture of the temple is a blend of Hoysala and Ganga architecture with its main deity in the form of Shiv Linga, having Shiva’s face on it. On the left side of the Shiv Linga is the idol of Parvati and Nandi’s idol being located in front of the main shrine of Mahabaleshwar. The temple also possesses the images of Sapta Mata (seven mothers), Ganesha, another Ganesha, and Nataraj along with Sivakami. Such a well structured temple is never to be missed while visiting Chamundi hills in Mysore.
