This is #Navaratri / #Dasara.

For long & even today, Dasara is synonymous with #Mysore. It is also the nADa-habba - the State Festival of Karnataka.

Dasara as the State Festival are a contribution of the #Wodeyar dynasty.

“May they prosper forever” - the Yadukula Santana.

Vijayadashami as a Festival has a very long history. Many classical texts trace it back to Mahabharata, although the Vyasa Bharata does not say anything. It, of course, goes back to Ramayana.

In the Classical era & subsequently in the preBritish references are galore.

The Vijayanagar Kings made Vijayadashami - Dasara a very big event, which is recorded by many travellers.

But its the Wodeyars alone who carried this festival to the Modern times. They transformed a cultural/religious event into a State/Civilizational Festival.
