    More about Karnataka

    Erstwhile State of Mysore, Karnataka is home to spice and coffee plantations and the biggest herd of elephants in Asia. Though Kannada is the local language of the state, English is widely spoken along with Tulu and Konkani.

    Bengaluru, the capital city of Karnataka, is the Silicon Valley of India and a global city in every sense- happening nightlife, amazing food, and rich in wildlife. It is also among the few cities in India where the weather is pleasant year round, hence it's always a good time to explore Bengaluru!

    Mysore, officially Mysuru, is located at the bottom of Chamundi Hills and is popularly called the cultural capital of Karnataka. Mysore Palace is one of the most majestic monuments here; it was the official residence of the Wodeyars- the royal family ruling Mysore from 1339 to 1950.

    Ooty, abbreviated from Udhagamandalam, lies approximately 80 km north of Coimbatore and is the capital of Nilgiris district. This place is not only a favoured holiday destination with tourists from abroad, but also extremely popular with Indians alike.
