Coorg - Festivals| January 14, 2013
October witnesses grand celebrations of Mercara Dasara and Cauvery Sankramana. The Mercara Dasara is special because it is celebrated at night. Throughout the night, the people throng on the roads to watch the procession of the Mantapas. Mercara Dasara’s main attraction is the Kala Jatha which includes various troops of the folk lore of the state. Both are celebrated with many exciting performances of dance and traditional sports programs. These are major attractions that draw tourists to Coorg.
