  Major Places of Karnataka

The Mysore Palace

The Mysore Palace is a three storeyed building with a length of 245 feet and breadth of 156 feet. There is a gold -plated dome about 145 feet in the open courtyard. The palace's front side is a wide open space. 'Gombe Thotti' or the Doll's Pavilion is from where the visitor enters the palace.

 

Tipu's Fort

Tipu's Fort is known for the beautifully carved arches in Islamic style on the gate walls. Originally built in mud by Kempe Gowda in 1537 AD, the fort was extended and fortified by Tipu Sultan. Kempe Gowda built a brick and mud defence structure on this site in 1537 AD.

 

Gulbarga Fort

Gulbarga fort, originally built by Raja Gulchand was later strengthened by Ala-ud-din Bahmani. The fort contained 15 towers and 26 guns of which one was 8 metres long. Within the ramparts of the fort, there is an imposing mosque, which resembles the great mosque of Cordova in Spain.

 

Chamundeshwari Temple

The temple is a fine quadrangular structure of Dravidian style with a splendid 40 mt high gopura or tower at the entrance. The silver-plated doorway has the images of the Goddess in different forms. In the sanctum sanctorum is the solid gold idol of the goddess Chamundeshwari, the tutelary deity of the Mysore maharajas and has been held in reverence for centuries.

   

Bidar Fort

In medieval times Bidar belonged to the Chalukyan branch who established their capital in 977 A.D. at Kalyani, 57 kms away. Falling to the Yadavas of Devagiri (Daulatabad) and to the Kakatiyas of Warangal in 1322 A.D., Bidar fully rose to prominence under the sultanate regime.

 

Badami Caves

The capital of the Early Chalukyas, Badami is picturesquely situated at the mouth of a ravine between two rocky hills, Badami is famous for its cave temples - all hewn out of sand stone on the precipice of a hill.

Badami is an interesting place to visit in Karnataka what with its artificial lake, ancient temples, Museum and Hindu and Jain caves carved in the Sandstone hills. The largest and most ornamental is the third cave temple dedicated to Vishnu.

 

Jog Falls

Bear witness to nature’s headlong tumble as the Sharavati river makes a spectacular drop of 810ft. (253m) in four distinct cascades – known locally as Raja, Rani, Rover, and Rocket – to create the highest falls in Asia. The falls are at their best during the monsoon, with arching rainbows colouring the mist. When the sluice gates of the upstream Linganamakki Dam are closed, it is worth taking a walk right down to the bottom of the gorge.

   
Malpe Beach

About 6 kms from Udupi is Malpe, an ideal picnic spot with its virgin beach. The endless stretch of golden sand, graciously swaying palm trees, the clear blue sky and the gurgle of the sea all set the perfect mood for an unforgettable holiday here.

   

Dandeli Kali Wildlife Sanctuary

Far from the din of the city, lies the calm and peaceful Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary, the largest wildlife sanctuary in Karnataka.

Nestling some very rare animal and birds is an unspoilt, untouched and unexplored treasure of wildlife. Where you can race with the wind, trek down nature trails.

 

Shopping in karnataka

Karnataka is famous for its aesthetic craftsmanship in sandalwood and rosewood. Eye-catching items of furniture, in-lay work, coffee tables, wall hangings etc. are worthwhile purchases.

Rich silks, wooden toys, leather puppets, Bidriware and other artefacts make ideal mementos.
