Mysore/Mysuru: Four days after the Dasara festival concluded with Jumboo Savari procession on Tuesday,  the Chamundeshwari Teppotsava took place at Devikere atop Chamundi Hill in the presence of hundreds of devotees on Saturday evening.

As part of Dasara festival, the Rathotsava was held atop the Chamundi Hill on Thursday, followed by Teppotsava at Devikere atop the Hill yesterday evening.

The Teppotsava, which was being held late in the evening in the past years, was conducted at 5 pm with all associated rituals in the rejuvenated Devikere lake atop the Hill on Saturday because of Lunar Eclipse (Chandra Grahana).
