Dakshin Kannad

Dakshin Kannad District - Karnataka


Mangalore, the district headquarters, of Dakshin Kannad district is a beautiful palm-fringed port on the western coast of Karnataka. Mangalore is located near the backwaters formed by the converging Netravati and Gurupur rivers. It was once a major seaport and ship building centre of Hyder Ali's kingdom. Today it is a major export centre of coffee and cashew nuts. The backwaters and the pleasant climate, make Mangalore a unique haven. Mangalore, has a long history of maritime trade. Though developed as a business and commercial centre Mangalore still retains its old world charm. Old tile-roofed buildings amidst coconut groves, fishing boats silhouetted against the darkening skyline, fishermen hauling in rich catch of fish, sea food served in spicy coconut curries; Mangalore is a remainder of the good times of life.
