MM Hills

Malai Mahadeshwara hills Malai Mahadeshwara hills (MM hills also called Mahadeshwara betta in local language, Kannada) belongs to Chamarajnagar district in Karnataka state. A well known place because of the forest brigand late Veerappan. This place was the hide out area for Veerappan for so many years. The famous Malai Mahadeswara temple is seen here. The surrounding is totally hill area and the temple is situated at the center of 7 hills. Special functions are organized during each Hindu festival.
During Deepavali festival a grand celeberation can be witnessed in this place. A place called Antharagange is seen very nearer to the main temple. Here, the mysterious water flow from the ground arises during the entire year and the origin is not yet known. The famous Hogenkal falls is also very nearer to this hill area which is only 45kms towards south. Hogenkal is situated in Tamilnadu.

How to reach Malai Mahadeshwara Hills

This place can be reached from two main cities, Bangalore and Mysore.

From Bangalore, people have to travel towards Mysore. They will reach a place called Ramanagaram (52 Kms from Bangalore), then after 10kms from Ramanagaram, they will get a place called Chennapattana. Continuing in the same route, people will get a place called Maddur after 20Kms from Chennapattana. In this place (Maddur) people have to take a left turn (ask the local people for help) to move towards Malavalli. If you miss this turn, people will travel towards Mysore. After 24kms journey from Maddur (taking left turn), people will reach the place called Malavalli. From Malavalli, people have to travel towards Kollegal which is 35 Kms from Malavalli. Continue the trip towards Hanur (24Kms from Kollegal) and then to Koudalli (16 Kms from Hanur).

Koudalli is the ground level region before starting the hill journey of the MM Hills. From this place, Malai Mahadeswara temple is 30 Kms in ghat/hill section. The total distance from Bangalore to MM Hills (Malai Mahadeswara Hills) is 200 Kms.

People travelling from Mysore have to come to a place called T.Narsipur (Thiruma kudalu Narsipur), also called T.N.Pura. Distance between Mysore and T.N.Pura is 30kms. From T.N.Pura, people have to move towards Kollegal which is only 31Kms. From Kollegal, the route becomes the same for that detailed above while coming from Bangalore. i.e., from Kollegal to Hanur (24Kms), from Hanur to Koudalli (16Kms) and to MM Hills to reach the Malai Mahadeswara temple (30Kms). The total distance from Mysore to Malai Mahadeswara temple is 130Kms.

People can visit Hogenkal falls from MM hills. Hogenkal is only 45 Kms from Malai Mahadeswara temple. They have to move towards the place called Palar (15 Kms from Malai Mahadeswara temple) and move towards Mettur dam (30Kms). Before reaching the Mettur dam, they reach a place called Gopinatham, ask for local people help and take left turn to reach Hogenkal falls.

I had a terrific and beautifull drive from Mysore to Salem via MM Hills.Started from Mysore around 530pm and a journey still remembered by my wife and kids.No traffic.So make sure your car is in perfect condition.It was a new route for us and were lucky to spot two elephants on the road, civet cat and pair of grey fox.If you are a nature lover travel by evening to catch its splendour.Only on reaching MM hills i knew how big a temple it was. Planning to be there this december holidays with kids and go on a adventure touring in that area.I was expecting to spot a big cat but i think there are none.Roads are okay. We were on this route in june 2009 driving our Fiat Uno.You have trekking organised by Chamrajnagar Forest Division.

This saturday (10.07.2010) mine and my family visited temple I am struggling for room, I went to room booking office and I asked room, room servants says there in no empty all rooms are filled but they are hanging so many keys on the wall board. I asked so many keys u r hanging give me one room ladies (My Mam and sister in-law) are there but he is refused to give room. He said who are the room donors are there, they were booked the room. I got anger but I controlled my self b'coz I dont want quarrel in my god place.

Finally I took private room for the rent of Rs.600/- per day. I am trying to contact Chief execute officer for MM Hills but I am not success. My question is, in temple good income is coming and more over they are having good funds in account of God. Why this people are not constructing temple Rooms, why these people are waiting for donors. will continue......

(One thing I wanted to share with urs, Saturday night peoples are slept around the temple, that day fully rain came. It has been stared around 10 PM and it's stopped @ 1.30 PM. where to sleep our village people) Majority of village peoples are visited to this place. they doesn't know the where/how to go toilets. Most of the people are used around the temple ground. It's really shame to us. (Pls. construct public toilets only one single toilet is there here they were taken for single Rs. 3-5/- for using toilets. will continue....
Ranganath13-07-2010
continue.........

Our villagers thinking is different they doesn't have money to pay for toilets, so they were using fields. Pls. make it free of cost at least special days) what CEO and sub ordinates are doing in MM Hills simply they were coming and going that's it. will continue.......
Ranganath13-07-2010
Continue.....

One more thing I wanted to share with MM devotees.

We had a Que for booking seva's for tomorrow morning Pooja's. I seen my eye one local guy came and went to seva office and he has taken 2-3 seva tickets and he gave Rs. 100/- for something. (Who are writing the seva tickets). Suddenly I thought, if devotees pay Rs.250/- extra (something) mean they will give the tickets to his/her room. This is not the good sign for temple culture and devotees also. (Who are took the seva ticket like this)

Dear Concerned,

Pls. look in to this and provide basic needs to devotees. God can give Ashirvada but servants are not giving to devotees.

This is only God to me which i can beleive the most in which all my problems have been solved. I ask all my devotees to visit this place once in their life time to achieve peace & happiness in their life.
