MYSURU: 23-year-old Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar was today crowned the new Maharaja, becoming the titular head of the Wodiyar family. The man who, in past years, would have been called the king.
The young man had said he was interested in promoting tourism in the area – and that he needed time to get used to the rituals. The last coronation in 1974 was of his uncle, Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar, who died in 2013.
