Mysore is famous for its Dasara (Dussehra), a festival which is devoted to the presiding deity of the city Goddess Chamundeshwari. It is celebrated sometime in September or October every year, and sees a huge outpouring of humanity from Mysore itself and from several neighbouring villages and towns.

The 10-day-long Dussehra festivities in Mysore are spread out across several locations in the city. Scores of cultural programmes are held at many venues: Mysore Palace, Jaganmohan Palace, Town Hall, Kala-mandira, Veena Shesanna Bhavana, Rangayana Bhoomigitha, Rajendra Bhavana, Krishna Gana Sabha and Natana Ranga Mantap.
