Revered with a varied makeup conforming to all the flirtation and courtship of typical India, Karnataka is an amalgam of crowning destinations, mega cities, tiger reserves, beaches, legendary hang out zones and ancient ruins. With the coastline encompassed by the pleasant palm beaches and the spectacular beauty amplified by the historical temples, Karnataka indeed is an ideal tourist place in India.
Majorly driven by the silicon-capital Bengaluru, brimming with superior life and lifestyle, Karnataka has its own platter composed of flavors, activities, things to do and enormous places to see. Enveloping the sybaritic city are lush green hills dotted with aromatic coffee and spice plantations, massive population of elephants (highest in Asia), tigers, resplendent majesty of Mysore and thick jungles overfed with monkeys.
Does this all sound cliché to you? Well, head forth to the counter cultural enclave of pristine Hampi that is teeming with archaic temple ruins, hammocks and enchanting sunsets. Explore the sculptural wonders of Karnataka by taking a visit to Halebid, Belur and Mysore that narrates the saga of the archaic past and speaks volumes of the sculptural wonder. It does not end here either. Take a deeper plunge in the beauty of Karnataka with its Gokarna that is a beach haven bereft the hullabaloo. Or rather, just leave the tourist trail for a while and take an odyssey to the magnificent Islamic ruins in the northern end of the state.
