Mysuru Palace and the titular head of the Mysuru palace hosts the famous annual Dussehra festival which includes the must watch elephant procession from the palace. Both the palace and the festival are considered sacred, and food has never been allowed to be consumed in the darbar hall, let alone leaving behind enormous amount of trash behind. Not surprising the caretaker prince and many others are upset by this development. Incidentally, Mysuru has been ranked the cleanest city in India for two years in a row.
