The word Mysuru is a damaged version of "mysooru" derived from the Kannada word "Mahishur" or "Mahishaslanaoor" which means the city of Mahishasla. Mysuru is associated with the Prana story found in Devi Bhagavatha. According to Deviprana, Misuru was dominated by the buffalo-headed monster, the Demon King Mahishasura. In response to the prayers of the gods and goddesses, save them from the demons near Misuru. Therefore, the names of the hills and towns are Charmundy Hill and Mistle, respectively.
