Mangaluru Dussera

Roya Tiger dance (Kannada: Hulivesha, Tulu: Piliesa) is a folk dance performed during Dasara. Typically young males form troops of five to ten. They are costumed like tigers and use a band with two or three drummers. They roam around the streets and houses. The tiger dance is performed to honor the goddess Sharada, whose favoured animal is the tiger.
