Mysuru: With the onset of Navaratri, the city of Palaces Mysuru looks like a bejewelled bride what with the gilded attractions after dusk.
This year due to the outburst of COVID-19 the government has announced the celebrations of the festival to be simple to avoid public gatherings. However, throughout nine days of this festival the city will be illuminated and a large set of people would come out with family and friends only to freeze the moment.
For many years, Chamundeshwari Electricity Supply Corporation (CESC) has been decking up the central business district with colourful lamps. Each year, they change the lightings and add new designs and themes to hook the public attention.
This year, regardless of simple Dasara CESC has taken upon the responsibility to make the city’s illumination just as attractive as previous years.
‘The government has announced to organise a simple dasara and has funded accordingly. Hence, we have retained a few designs from previous year with addition to a set of new lightings near Raja Marga. We have tried to make the city as beautiful and fulfil people’s expectation by understanding this year’s circumstances,’ said Munigopala Raju, SE, CESC.
The illumination is spread across the entire city covering Railway circle, K R circle, Chamaraja Wadiyar circle, Jayachamaraja Wadiyar Circle (Hardinge circle), D D Urs Road, Ramaswamy Circle, Bannimantap and many more places. The illumination will be on from 7 pm to 9 pm for 10 days from today.
