The gateway to the Western Ghats, Mangalore is the cultural backbone of Karnataka. Experience traditional dance forms, and visit some temples that are held in high esteem. If chilling out is more up your alley, stretch out at one of the well maintained beaches here with some tender coconut water and watch the waves crash. The sun shines for the most part of the day, so watch out for that tan!
Foodies unite here at Mangalore to try the coconut based cuisine. Famous for its Mangalore fish curry, other accompaniments include Neer dosa, and the all pervading idly. A Mangalore meal comprises a number of items. Savor each flavorful one, neatly laid out on a Banana leaf.
