History of Mysore Dasara

The Mysore Dasara history dates back to 1610, when Raja Wadiya first started the 10-day celebration. The ceremony is closely linked to the myth of the goddess Chamundeshwari of the Chamundi Hill, who was said to have defeated the buffalo-headed monster, Mahishasura, and thus restored the victory of truth over evil. This is especially depicted on the tenth day of the festival called the Vijayadashmi, while the other nine-day "Navratri" depicts the nine forms of the goddess Shakti. The seat of the palace has remained the same since the celebration of this myth some centuries ago and has introduced various rituals and modern forms of art, culture and entertainment to Wadiya's celebrations with the passing of time.
