Kambala festival is a Indias most unique tradition which dates back to thousand years. It is special buffalo festival where one can see buffaloes having drag race contest in muddy track! It is said that fastest animals can even run 120 meter track within 14 seconds!
It is believed that the tradition found its roots from royal family who started testing animals ability for purpose of war. No real purpose of war was found for water buffalos yet their speed was remarkable. Not only remarkable but also entertaining for the royal family as well as for villagers. So the Kambala festival was born as an event which is still held every year specialy at Karnataka.
Yet Karnataka has much much more to offer than Kambala! We went to see the best of lost Hindu empires at Hampi and also Mysore Palace!
