You will only have a short time to glimpse the goddess, but it is worth it. To the right of the temple, you'll find a poorly marked set of stairs, which will take you by the giant Nandi (bull statue). You may not want to look up while you're climbing down the stairs, as you'll see hundreds of large spiders! At the very bottom of the stairs (it will take a LONG time to hit the bottom; this is not recommended for unfit people), you'll find a small shrine and can take a rickshaw back to central Mysore.
