There are many KSRTC buses from city bus stand to Chamundi hill. It is very cool and divine place to visit with family and friends. If there is long queue one can buy the tickets and enter the shrine directly.

It is very pleasant and divine place to visit with family and friends. It's place of divine mother in the form of the goddess chamundeshwari. Try steps if you're able to climb 1000 steps.
