Golden Chariot Mysore Dasara Special

Mysore Dasara Special

Mysore Dasara is the state festival of Karnataka and is organized every year in Mysore. Mysore is well known for the festivities that take place during the period of Dasara. Numerous cultural events and functions are organized during ten days of Dasara festivities.

On the tenth day, known as Vijayadashami, (this year on 30 sept 2017)the traditional Dasara procession is held on the streets of Mysore. An image of the Goddess Chamundeshwari is placed on a golden howdah on the back of a decorated elephant and taken on a procession, accompanied by tableaux, dance groups, music bands, decorated elephants, horses and camels. The five kilometers long procession starts from Mysore Palace and culminates at a place called Bannimantapa, where the Banni tree is worshipped. The grand and famous elephant parade is locally known as Jumbo Savari.

The Dasara festivities culminate on the night of Vijayadashami with a torchlight parade, locally known as Panjina Kavayatthu.
