General

Mangaluru is situated in Karnataka in South India and nestles between the western mountain range (Sahyadri) and the Konkan coast.  The resplendent beauty of the area is definite to steal the hearts of all.  Part of the Malanad area which is the birth place of the famous Yakshagana, a dance-drama, Mangaluru also has a rich cultural heritage. The History of Mangalore dates back to the Mythological times and legend has it that Mangalore was reclaimed from the sea by the great sage Parasurama.  It also finds reference in the history books written by Ptolemy and Pliny.  Among the major dynasties that ruled Mangaluru were Kadambas, Alupas, Western Chalukyas, Hoysalas and Rashtrakutas.  Mangalore was also ruled by the Portuguese, the Arabs, Tipu Sulthan and the British before becoming a part of Karnataka State on 1st November, 1956.

Mangaluru has a major sea port and many major industries like Kudremukh Iron Ore Company Limited and Mangalore Refineries and Petrochemicals Limited.  Many places of tourist interest are a very short distance away from Mangaluru.  Mangalore is home to sumptuous foods and culinary tradition.  Many hotels in the city provide decent accommodation at moderate rates.
