After catching a glimpse of illuminated Mysuru city, tourists can't visit the temple as it closes at 8 pm. Hence it has been decided to keep the temple open till 10 pm to enable the visitors to see the temple."
To a query over the request of various organisations to extend Dasara illumination for 10 more days till Deepavali, the minister said, "Some unions and organizations have requested for extension for three days and some for 10 days. A decision in this regard will be taken by Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai who is coming to Mysuru. We will discuss the proposal with the chief minister, he added.
