‘Visit Mangalore- the City of the Sultans’
Placed between the Arabian Sea and the Western Ghat ranges, Mangalore, is the chief port city of the Indian State of Karnataka. Lying along the backwaters of the Netravati and Gurupura rivers, this city is one of the most important ports along the Malabar Coast. The city is set on a landscape characterized by rolling hills, freshwater streams, coconut palms and red brick tiled roof buildings. This port that exports more than 75 per cent of India’s Coffee trades is also a tropical tourist destination, which radiates the diversity between religions and the cohesiveness of cultures.

Mangalore was ruled by numerous major powers like the Kadambas, Chalukyas, and Vijaynagar dynasty, Chalukyas, Hoyssalas, Rashtrakutas and the Portuguese. Mangalore remained a part of the Madras Presidency when annexed by British in 1799, and after independence the city was unified with the state of Madras, which is today called Karnataka. The city derives its name from the local Hindu Goddess Mangaladevi, and cultural demographics of the land are diverse with languages like Konkani, Tulu, Beary Bashe and Kannada.
