What is Kambala?
Kambala is a buffalo race that takes place in the coastal districts of Karnataka during the winter, coinciding with the busy paddy harvest season for farmers. This unique race involves pairs of buffaloes running on two muddy and watery tracks, guided by a jockey, commonly known as a ‘Kambala runner.’ The victorious team progresses to higher rounds, ultimately determining the champion.
In Kambala, success extends beyond merely winning the race; participants also strive to create splashes of water, and in some instances, winners are determined by the amount of water splashed, referred to as ‘kolu.’ Emerging victorious in a Kambala race is a noteworthy accomplishment, and the racing buffaloes receive special care and attention throughout the year.
