Day 14 At Mysore continues..

We came out of Zoo only after receiving 3-4 calls from our leader for the day Mr. Khan saheb! Obviously, with kids, leaving such a rich (in terms of diversity), well-managed and well-maintained Zoo was always going to be difficult.

Then we headed to the last point - Chamundi Temple.

That little drive was good, he explained several things on-way, we stopped to see Chandan-trees closely, had Darshan at both the temples, visited that huge Nandi, stopped en-route down the hill, to have wonderful view of the City.
Time was running out, as our plan was to reach Medicari same evening! It was already 5 pm! Finally Khan saheb left us at Medicari road. We both were satisfied, we voluntarily paid him more then was originally bargained!

We needed some eating break, so stopped at a good restaurant immediately on Madicari road. At this point, during this break, I faced a decision dilemma for the 2nd time during the trip! So a little interesting tale coming up next..

First, last set of Pics from Mysore: That includes visit to Chamunda temple, Nandi and views of city from there.

Thanks Indian Ranger and ampere.

Nandi and Mahishasura are places which brings generation worth of memories to me. Need to go there once again!

Water water every where,
As far as eye could see,
Wetting my heart; Pouring on my head,
I visit all place thee!


Great Spirit LDL!
