The iconic Amba Vilas Palace here is all decked up for the royal wedding of Wodeyar family scion Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wodeyar on 27 July 2016.
Boston-educated Yaduveer (24) will tie the nuptial knot with Trishika Kumari Singh at Kalyana Mantapa in the palace between 9:05 AM and 9:35 AM during the auspicious Karkataka lagna, palace sources have said.
Trishika is the daughter of Harshvardhan Singh and Maheshri Kumari from the Dungarpur royal family in Rajasthan. Marriage rituals have been underway since yesterday with the stamp of royal traditions. The rituals began with Yaduveer performing “pada puja’ to Rajaguru’ Bramhatantra Parakala mutt seer Abhinava Vageesha Brahmatantra Swatantra Swami.
In a traditional ceremony on May 28 last year, Yaduveer was crowned as the titular head of the erstwhile Mysuru royal family. During Dasara he had ascended the golden throne to preside over the khasa (private) durbar’, which is reminiscent of the bygone era. About 1,000 invited guests are expected to witness the marriage ceremonies which will be officiated by a battery of priests. Among those invited include top politicians, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and his Cabinet colleagues, diplomats from consulates of several countries. erstwhile royal families from across the country. Wedding receptions will be held on June 28 and July 2 at palace in Mysuru and Bengaluru respectively. Yaduveer was engaged to Trishika much before his adoption as scion to royal family. Pramoda Devi Wodeyar, widow of Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wodeyar, the last descendant of Wodeyar dynasty, formally adopted Yaduveer Gopal Raj Urs in February last year, as the couple had no children. After the adoption, he was re christened as Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wodeyar.
