They accorded a grand welcome to tourists at the Mysuru Palace. Titular king Yaduveer Krishnadutta Chamaraja Wodeyar greeted the tourists with flowers.
There was a flurry of questions from the tourists and Yaduveer Wadiyar told them to talk to Mysore Palace Board to know more about private durbar, golden throne and the Dasara jumbos
Mysuru Travels Association president Prashanth said, “Due to the pandemic situation, the tourism has gone for a toss in Mysuru. People who depend on tourism for their livelihood are going through a bad phase. The Mysuru Dasara Jamboo Savari which has been restricted only to Mysuru Palace should be extended till Bannimantap so that more people get some work.”
