Dussehra which is also known Dasara in the state of Mysore have brought the state in motion as the people there have already started the preparation for the grand event to take place on 30th September, 2017. Mysore is the only state that is being into much focus as it is believed to get the name from the demon Mahisasura. This festival is much awaited among the people as it is celebrated just 10 days earlier Navaratri. During this auspicious festival, people fast to seek blessings from Goddess Durga and the whole state of Mysore is being decorated with flowers and lights with adds to the beauty of the city.
The day of Dasara has much of significance as on this day, Lord Rama defeated Ravana and killed him to get back his wife Sita. In most of the parts of North India, huge idols of Ravana are made and are set to fire on the day of Dussehra to signify the real meaning and importance of the day which highlights the victory of good over the evil.
Keeping in view the royal importance of the festival, the Karnataka government decide to organise two special trips to the Golden Chariot, one of a 44 cabin luxury train that will typically serve a seven-night South Indian tour package for Rs 30,000 per person from September 23 to 25 and the other will be from September 29 to October 1.
