The Royal Splendor
Dasara at Mysore is a Royal Festival Celebrating victory of Truth over Evil.Legend has it that the Goddess Chamundeeswari or Durga slew the demon Mahishasuran on Vijayadashami day. Dasara is a 10-day festival in the region culminating on Vijayadashami or tenth day.
The Entire city of Mysore comes alive and people from all over the world come to Mysore to watch the Dasara proceedings and the Dasara procession which ends the Dasara celebrations.
Me and Nara had been to Mysore to enjoy the Dasara festival and also shoot the proceedings. The whole city was upbeat,festivity was in the air and excitement all over the place.
It was just awesome to be there and feel the festival.
This is a panaromic shot of the Grandly lit Mysore palace,where most of the celebrations took place.
I begin to post the Dasara pictures and i hope to post a few more in the next week. Enjoy.
