DASARA GAMES CM CUP-2023


Dasara is the Nada habba (state-festival) of the state of Karnataka in India. It is a 10-day festival, starting with Navaratri and the last day being Vijayadashami. Festival of Dasara celebrates the victory of good over evil. It was the day in the Hindu legends when Goddess Chamundeshwari (Durga) killed the demon Mahishasura. Mahishasura is the demon whose slaying by the Goddess gave the city the name Mysuru.

The Mysuru tradition celebrates the warriors and the state fighting for the good during this festival, ritually worshipping and displaying the state sword, weapons, elephants, horses along with Hindu Devi goddess in her warrior form (predominantly) as well as the Vishnu avatar Rama.

The city of Mysuru has a long tradition of celebrating the Dasara festival with grandeur and pomp to mark the festival. The Dasara festivities began with the Vijayanagar kings in 15th Century in Mysuru completed 400th anniversary in year 2010.

Earlier, festivities included a special durbar (royal assembly). It was during the reign of Krishnaraja Wodeyar III in the year 1805, when the king started the tradition of having a special durbar in the Mysuru Palace during Dasara. The ninth day of Dasara called as Mahanavami is also an auspicious day on which the royal sword is worshipped and is taken on a procession involving elephants, camels and horses.

Other key attractions of Dasara are:

Mysuru Palace: Daily illumination of Mysuru Palace with nearly 100,000 light bulbs from 7 pm to 10 pm. Various cultural and religious programs highlighting the dance, music and culture of the State of Karnataka are performed in front of the illuminated Palace.
