Dasara is one of the important festivals of Karnataka, and is celebrated in a grand way in Mysore. The heritage of celebration dates back to the time of Wodeyar Kings. Now supported by the government, it is a major event looked forward to by locals and tourists alike.
This year's Dasara festivities will begin from September 30th and will go on for ten days. The celebrations usually include a lot of sports and cultural events and an exhibition, concluded with a grand procession on the last day. If you are in Bangalore, Mysore, or travelling anywhere in South India, make sure to take a break for a couple of days to get to Mysore and attend the celebrations.
