An elephant’s royal touch
Elephants in Indian folklore have an enduring presence as chariots of gods while the Indian royal era and Mughal era bestowed elephants a more majestic status when they began to be adorned in ornate jewelry. The Mysore Dasara festival that happens annually in the city of Mysuru on the day of Vijayadashmi (the annual Indian festival) is famous for the most embellished elephants. The famous annual Dasara Procession involves the idol of Goddess Chamundeshwari, which is placed on top of a decorated elephant that carries it from the Mysore Palace to Bannimantap grounds. This is where the God of the tribal folk becomes a humble chariot of a goddess.
