Event Brief
The Torchlight Parade - Bannimantapa

The Dasara celebrations culminate on the night of Vijayadashami with the Panjina Kavayatthu, torchlight parade held at Bannimantapa. The Maharaja, dressed in his riding clothes, makes an entry on horseback to the parade grounds. He is saluted by his military units. Lights would be lit up to welcome the Maharaja and his military officials. Only military units participate in this organized parade.

The original purpose of the parade was to instil confidence in the people and to showcase the military capability of the ruling king. Now the whole occasion showcases the grandeur and majesty of the erstwhile rulers and offers the people a glimpse into the history of the state.

The parade also includes an equestrian show and a feat of acrobatics on motorbikes. The much lauded programme of the day is the laser show organized on the parade grounds. The entire parade comes to an end with the playing of the national anthem of the erstwhile Mysore state by the military band.
