Art & Culture
A visit to Mysore will hit you with an aura of grandeur and royalty that is all pervading. The past rulers of Mysore ensured that Mysore developed as a capital that nurtured fine arts & built a city that has enviable and enduring value as a heritage city. Naturally this effort entailed that the feel of the city be carefully planned and culture palpable.
The well planned city with its beautiful lakes, parks & boulevards and institutions has been able to attract & inspire poets, literateurers, musicians, exponents of dance, drama, educationists as well as artists in wood carving, sculpture, drawing & painting to give out their best. Art galleries, art schools, auditoriums and associations that promote the above activities are in plenty.
The best time to immerse yourself in Mysore’s heritage & culture is to be in Mysore during Dasara - during which the entire city dons a festive look. Legend has it that the Goddess Chamundeshwari, whose temple is situated atop the Chamundi Hill, killed the demon king Mahishasura during this period and as such the 10th day of Dasara is celebrated as ‘Vijaya Dashami’, symbolizing the triumph of good over evil.
The Mysore Dasara procession which takes place on this day is world famous, wherein the statue of the goddess seated in a golden howdah on an elephant follows a troupe of artists, camels, caparisoned elephants, silver coaches and tableaus that reflect the state’s development.
