Dasara elephants enter Mysore Palace

September 16, 2021

With less than a month for a scaled-down Dasara, a total of eight Dasara elephants — Ashwathama, Dhananjaya, Vikrama, Kaveri, Chaitra, Lakshmi and Gopalaswamy — led by Golden Howdah-bearer Abhimanyu, were accorded a traditional welcome at the Mysore Palace this morning. The caparisoned elephants were accorded a warm welcome by showering flower petals on them. In the background of Nadaswarams, the pachyderms majestically walked into the Palace from the Jayamarthanda Gate.
