New Delhi: Navratri is a 9-day festival celebrated with great pomp in our country. According to mythology, Maa Durga fought with Mahishasura for 9 days to protect the gods and was victorious on the tenth day after her slaying. This day is celebrated as Vijaya Dashami for the victory over the Asuras. On the other hand, for the rest of the 9 days of Navratri, nine forms of the mother are worshiped and celebrated in different ways in different states of the country.
This is the reason that during Navratri, when the idol of Mata is installed, the idol of Mahishasura is also installed along with it. But you will not get to see any temple in India where you can see the Asuras statue. On the contrary, if we talk about Mysore, then here in Chamundi Hills you will get to see the statue of Mahishasura, which is also the main attraction here. Thousands and lakhs of tourists arrive to see it and celebrate their weekend there with joy.
The statue of Mahishasura is located in the Chamundi Hills of Mysore, which is quite attractive. Apart from this, there is also a statue of Nandi, which is also very attractive to tourists. If we talk about Chamundi Hills, then there is a temple of Chamundeshwari Mata, where lakhs of devotees and tourists come every year to visit. It is believed that every wish made in the temple of Mata is fulfilled and during Durga Puja, the crowd of devotees increases even more because there is also another form of Mata Chamundeshwari. But if we talk about the main attraction, then the statue of Mahishasura is the center of attraction, which is visited by thousands and millions of people.
