Awash with a million lights, Mangaluru is astounding tourists and locals alike as they see the city in a new hue.

The Gokarnanatha temple has illuminated the streets where the Mangaluru Dasara Shobha Yatre is being taken out. This year’s illumination is completely different compared to past years. People from all over the nation are showing a positive response to the illumination in the city.
