Mysooru Dasara…

yeshtondu sundara πŸ™‚

* Visited the Mysore palace and the Dasara flower show..

* Clicked pics .. πŸ™‚

* Sat in the lawns and enjoyed the song and dance performances by some orchestra group while eating the famous delhi papad and menasinakayi bhajjis πŸ™‚

* Lunch at uncle’s place on Ayudha pooja

* Visited the Dasara exhibition… but had to return disappointed coz of power/generator failure at the amusement rides 😦

* Walked along the brightly lit streets looking at the milling crowds, vehicles and tanga passing by..

* On Dashami, lazed at home… reread a couple of books and watched the dasara procession live telecast on TV.

* Kids vetoed the idea of venturing out in the evening … they were busy building temples and high rises and did not want to be disturbed πŸ˜€

* Watched the grand fireworks that mark the end of Dasara celebrations from the terrace πŸ™‚

* On the last day… managed to go and meet my friends G n S from my university days. Spent just couple of hours.. had to catch the train at 2.00 pm. They are my can-pick-up-from-where-you-left type of friends πŸ™‚ and needless to say we can go on talking if left to ourselves πŸ˜€

A passage way in the palace..

Lights everywhere!

By the fountain…

A temple in the palace premises

The palace gates..

Adi with tatha .. at the gate

Plants… lotus shape πŸ™‚

Majestic .. Gandaberunda!

Beautiful lilies πŸ™‚

Lovely arrangement with idol of the Goddess in the centre ..

At the Dasara exhibition…

As we went during the later part of Dasara, we missed the events that were part of Entertainment Dasara and Yuva Dasara. Next time I plan to go during the earlier part and catch up on these… πŸ™‚ Hopefully, there will be some interestingΒ eventsΒ and i’ll have the company of my friends!!

Happy weekend folks πŸ™‚

  2. I’ve visited the Mysore Palace and felt a very regal feeling just at the huge size of it.. apart from the intricate detailing inside. It must’ve looked so beautiful with all the lights and Dasara celebrations. The pics look great.


Thoughts? I'd love to hear :)
