They accorded a grand welcome to tourists at the Mysuru Palace. Titular King Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wodeyar greeted the tourists with flowers. The tourists flooded Yaduveer Wadiyar with questions, and he advised them to contact the Mysore Palace Board to learn more about the private durbar, golden throne, and Dasara jumbos.
