12 feet floral statue of Goddess Cauvery to be main attraction
Madikeri: To attract tourists to Kodagu that was ravaged by flash floods and landslides, the Tourism Department and the District Administration have organised a three-day ‘Kodagu Pravasi Utsav-2019’ from Jan. 11 to 13 at Gandhi Maidan in Madikeri. The intention of the festival is to pull in more tourists whose numbers have dwindled, hitting the tourism industry hard.
The festival is being organised on the lines of the just concluded Mysuru Winter Festival-2018. Apart from an open street festival, flower and dog shows and exhibitions, the main attraction will be a 12 feet floral statue of Goddess Cauvery, the Kula Devi of Kodavas and Gowda communities.
