The port city in Karnataka, known for its pristine beaches, diverse cultural heritage and some brilliant Udupi-style cuisine. Tall, swaying palm and coconut trees and lush green surroundings offer a soothing holiday experience, despite the growing commercial character of the city.

On the Western coastline of India, this "gateway to Karnataka" is replete with a history of shipbuilding, trading port and a variety of dynasties and rulers presiding over the region. Several ancient temples and churches stand witness to this history, including the Mangladevi temple in whose honour the town is named, also offering tourists to satisfy the pilgrims in them. Gokarnanatheshwara Temple is an important religious centre dedicated to Gorakhnatha - Lord Shiva. With lofty, verdant mountains in the backdrop, Mangalore boasts an array of clean, serene beaches, some of which are Mukka, Someshwara, Tannirbavi and Panambur beaches, surrounded by palm and coconut trees that complete the holiday picture. Panambur Beach is around 13 km from Mangalore and is a great place to relax and rejuvenate. Surathkal Beach is another popular beach, which is famous for its powdery sand. To enjoy a mind-blowing view of the ocean, do not forget to visit the lighthouse. St. Aloysius Church is famous for its beautiful architecture and interiors. Most of the walls of this church are covered by paintings by Antonio Moscheni - An Italian Artist.


Famous for its seafood and Udupi-style dishes, Mangalore is surely a delight for foodaholics. Take home Mangalore 's export-quality coffee and cashews and some beautiful sarees to make your trip unforgettable. Of all the destinations on Karnataka’s coast, Mangalore comes closest to being a crowded and noisy city. A centre of maritime trade for centuries, it still shows Portuguese influences in steepled churches and on the name-boards on gates and commercial establishments. It was here that the famous Mangalore tiles, made from the resilient clay of the Netravati-Gurpura-Arabian Sea confluence, were first made. Mangalore continues to be one of Karnataka’s main ports and much of the state’s coffee and cashew are exported from here. It also has some nice beaches, where the city goes to breathe.
