About Naada Habba - Dasara
It is the 10-day festival of Dussehra which is one of the most popular festivals in Karnataka, especially in the Mysore region.
In Karnataka, the origin of Nada Habba is mainly associated with the slaying of the demon Mahishasura by Chamundeshwari.
The highlight of the festival is a procession on the day of Vijayadashami (the last day) to mark the victory of good over evil.
