Thanks for your comments WWU !....

Here is the Second Set of photos of Mysore Dasara Week.

1 .Today we went to "Wrestling Competition" which is held opposite to Mysore Palace "South Gate" Entrance [This is Adjacent to Dasara Exhibition ].. It's crowded by Mainly Villagers & Locals who travelled from in & Around Mysore who is in Full Enthusiasm !.. Free Entrance and it's interesting to see the competition and this is an "Open-Air Stadium" with Chamundi Hills Backdrop

2. Next We visited "Dasara Exhibition" and the entrace fees is 10 Rs and Quite a lot of Stalls , Eatable Shops, Stalls from Karnataka Government enterprises like "Nandini Milk" & Very interesting Stall from Reserve Bank of India where they showed "Forged Notes" and how to find out the difference etc and also in display older Indian Rupees like 10,000 Rs etc which are not in use now !

3. You could place the Cursor over the photo to see the place / Event name .

Tomorrow, I am planning to visit Chamundi Hills and try to take snaps of "Mysore Landmarks" from the hilltop and will post it for our Indiamike Members !!


Cheers
