Origin of the name Mysore

The name Mysuru is the anglicised version of Mahishuru, meaning the abode of Mahisha in Kannada. Mahisha stands for Mahishasura, who according to Hindu mythology ruled the area. Mysore or Mahishur, as it was called in olden times, traces its history back to a mythical past, when Goddess Chamundeshwari, whose temple is situated atop the Chamundi Hills near present-day Mysore, killed Mahishasura, the buffalo-headed asura (demon).
