Karnataka Travel

The state of Karnataka, The Lofty Land, formerly known as Mysore is flanked by Goa and Maharashtra and lies to the west of Andhra Pradesh, to the north west of Tamil Nadu and to the north of Kerala. It lies majorly in the Deccan Plateau and in the rain-shadow areas.

Karnataka's history takes us back to pre-historic times. The earliest find of the Stone Age period in India was a hand axe at Lingasugur in Raichur district. Chandra Gupta Maurya, the great Indian emperor abdicated his throne to embrace Jainism at Shravanabelagola. Karnataka has the imprint of many dynasties. Prominent among them were the Chalukyas, the Hoysalas and the mighty Vijayanagar Empire. In 1956, the Kannada speaking areas were grouped along with the princely state of Mysore to form what we now call Karnataka in 1973.
