MANGALURU: The 10-day grand Dasara festival, which took place after a two-year gap, came to an end with thousands of people taking part in the event. The Dasara procession started from Kudroli Sri Gokarnath temple at 4.30 pm on Wednesday and ended at 9.10 am on Thursday morning.
The idol procession travelled 7 km through the city and had more than 80 different tableaux of Lord Ganapati, Goddesses Sharada, Adishakti and Navadurga.
The tableaux also depicted the history of India, and the famed tiger dance (Pili Vesha) and various other folk dances, which attracted the crowd. Musical events were organised in different parts of the city.
The Mangaluru Dasara procession concluded with the immersion of the Goddess Sharada idol along with other idols at the Pushkarani (stepped well) at Kudroli Sri Gokarnanatha Temple.
