Mysore’s New Maharaja Yaduveer Gopal Raj Urs

Yaduveer Raj Urs adopted as heir of Mysuru Royal Family, heir of the 700-year-old Wadiyar dynasty and rechristened Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar. Yaduveer arrived at the specially erected ‘mantapa’ in the Kalyana Mantapa of the Palace accompanied by his parents Tripura Sundari Devi and Swarup Anand Gopal Raj Urs.


Yaduveer is the great grandson of Subramanya Raj Urs, the younger brother of Chamaraja Wadiyar X.

A team of priests supervised by Brahmathantra Swatantra Paraka Mutt Swamiji overlooked the adoption rituals conducted by Indrakshi Devi, sister of late Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar and monitored by Pramoda Devi Wadiyar.

An adoption is taking place in the family after 135 years and after the princely states were dismantled in 1967. The event sets all speculation to rest on who will be the next crown prince to succeed Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar who died in December 2013. The adoption comes 14 months after the death of Srikantadatta, at a time when the family is facing a crisis, given the state government’s move to acquire the palace, their abode for over two centuries.
