Mangalore - The Hidden Swarg

Plan Your Tour
By Kapil Vastu

A place I visited recently was Mangalore, in South India. Just a three h ours ride from Bangalore and you land in Mangalore. It's a small town dominated mostly by Muslims. Though Kerala is called "God's own Paradise" but I feel it is true only to a certain extent. Only the places which have been commercialized are worth a mention and attract tourists, primarily because of the backwaters of the Kerala. But the city of Mangalore is neglected to the extent of not even having the basic drainage facilities. The infrastructure is in poor condition. But the natural beauty of the place is worth seeing. It's a treat for the eyes. The sea and the forts in the city attract a lot of tourists. Most of the people to earn a living still follow the age old practices like fishing, selling goods. The small city because of its natural beauty also attracts bollywood stars for shooting.

In all I couldn't resist some of the basic attractions of South India - the south indian cuisine, sea beaches and the hill stations like munnar.In a way his small town is like a reflection of ancient India whose beauty is still untouched by the outside word.
