Mysuru: Arjuna led team of Dasara elephants have entered another league of practice on September 19.
Wooden howdah was mounted on the howdah carrier to acclimatise the elephant with the task he has to perform on Jamboo Savari day on October 8.
The howdah along with the sand bags equalling the weight of 750- kg golden howdah was carried by Arjuna from Mysuru Palace north gate to Bannimantap.
Veterinarian Dr Nagaraj said “It is very much essential to practice the elephants with wooden howdah to make it sure that the elephant carries the real howdah with much ease”.
The other lead elephants like Abhimanyu and Dhananjaya and newcomer Eshwara will also be carrying the howdah on alternative days.
