This was my first real temple experience in India. This is Chamundeswari Temple on top of Chalmundi Hill near Mysore in Southern India. Before going there, I was warned by my driver not to buy anything and not to take anything. Before I made it 10 feet from the car, I had two handfuls of offerings for ‘the lady’. After a stern scolding from my driver, they left me alone.
