Lying in the Western coast and touching the Arabian Sea, Mangalore has been historically a ship building centre. Being a strategic port it was always under conflict in the past, thus having been under several varied dynasties Mangalore today is a blend of the new and old. Tulunadu is one of the most enchanting place to travel. Though known for its religious places of worship, the place is blessed with green fields, water falls, beautiful beaches and with rich variety of flora and fauna.
Mangalore was named after the goddess Mangaladevi. The story behind goes along way in enriching the cultural heritage of Mangalore. Mangalore is the administrative headquarters of Dakshina Kannada district, southwestern Karnataka (formerly Mysore) state, southern India, a port on the Arabian Sea. It is also one the major ports of India.
Lying on the backwaters formed by the Netravati and Gurpur rivers, it has long been a roadstead along the Malabar Coast. Engaged in Persian Gulf trade in the 14th century, Mangalore was occupied by the Portuguese in the mid-16th century. In the 18th century its control was contested by Haidar Ali and Tipu Sultan on one hand and the British on the other. Under the Mysore sultans (1763) it became a strategic ship building base, which was ceded to the British in 1799 after numerous sieges.
