Kambala

The Kambala or Water Buffallo Race is a colourful and visually arresting rural sport of Dakshina Kannada. It is organised annually at various places and large crowds gather to watch the spectacular feat. From past to present, the Kambala remains a popular form of mass entertainment testing the skill of man and animal alike.
At Pilikula, we have attempted to recreate the splendour of this rare sport by laying a race track opposite the Guttu House. A special breed of buffalo is reared and trained exclusively for the race.
