9780060508944: Climbing Chamundi Hill: 1001 Steps with a Storyteller and a Reluctant Pilgrim

At the top of the 1,001 steps up Chamundi Hill, there lies a 12th-century temple that houses the golden statue of Chamundi, the Hindu goddess worshipped by the Maharajas. A popular pilgrimage site, this sacred place honours this consort of Shiva who saved the citizens of Mysore from the monstrous rule of their mythical king. Set against the exotic background of Southern India, "Climbing Chamundi Hill" follows the experiences of a young tourist who, befriended by an old Indian guide, somewhat reluctantly embarks upon the arduous climb to the sacred Shiva temple. Having journeyed to the top of the hill many times, the old pilgrim offers to accompany the young man on his journey and to relate many ancient Indian tales that will help to ease their way and pass the time. So begins a mystical adventure for narrator and reader alike.
