Mysore is a city in the Indian state of Karnataka.

It was the capital of the kingdom of Mysore, which forms a large part of modern-day Karnataka.

One of the best (some would say worst) times to visit Mysore is during the annual nine-night, ten-day Dussera[?] or Navaratri[?] festival, which usually occurs in early October.
