The Legendary Stone Chariot at Hampi. The quaint old emerald foliage at Karwar, the beautiful twittering of exotic birds at Ranganathittu, Karnataka is full of such wonders.Splendorous sights and sounds that relax the mind and take the body some place else. But the beauty of all this is that they are located at close proximity to Bangalore. There is something for everyone. Suiting every time schedule. Be it for a sight seeing jaunt for a day or a soul-searching endeavor for months. No wonder Karnataka is called the theatre of inspiration. Karnataka is also the ‘cradle of stone architecture’. It is an eloquent reminder of a rich heritage. Karnataka has the largest jungle area south of the Vindhyas. Some of this belonged to former rulers. Karnataka charms its way into hearts with veritable hill stations. Expect spectacular views of dense forests, blue seas and deep valleys. Karnataka’s spiritual and historical past fills tomes. Legends mingle with history, fascinating pilgrims as the enigma of Indian philosophy unravels. Karnatak is also the home to some of nature’s amazing headlong tumbles. Witness some brilliant cascades in the state.
