From Academic Kids

Dasara, also called "Navaratri", is among the most important festivals celebrated in Southern India. Unlike Dussera, this is celebrated for 10 days in Southern parts.

The Festival of Dasara is celebrated on the occasion of Navaratri. Celebrations are unique ranging from worshipping goddess Chamundeshwari (Durga) to exhibiting colorful toys on the day of 'bombe habba' in Kannada or 'Bommala Koluvu' in Telugu. See also Navratri.

Vijaya Dashami

The last day of all the celebrations is Vijaya Dashami. In Mysore Dasara, a tradition of carrying goddesses Chamundeshwari on a golden chariot heaved on a Elephant is in practice since the days of the old Mysore Kingdom in the Wodeyars' rule. People from all over the world go to Mysore to witness this cultural event. Many cultural events happen at the main Palace in Mysore. Post Independence, the Government of Karnataka has taken over the tradition and is continuing the celebration every year in the same tradition as the Old Mysore Kingdom.
