Karnataka Tourism

The state of Karnataka has all the ingredients for great holiday. Karnataka, which is the eighth largest state in India, is a veritable treasure trove of tourist delights. By virtue of its varied geography and long and rich history, Karnataka boasts of numerous spots of interest for tourists. Karnataka has been ranked fourth most popular destination for tourism among states of India. There is a dazzling array of ancient sculptured temples, modern cities, scenic hill ranges, unexplored waterfalls & forests, wildlife, monuments and endless beaches.

Formed in 1950, Karnataka was formerly known as Mysore and it is now among one of the four southern political units. Kannada is the official language of Karnataka but English is widely spoken in the main cities. The eighth largest state of India boasts of unforgettable tourist delights – the dazzling ancient sculpted temples, scenic mountains, pleasant and enjoyable weather, rich palaces, endless beaches, virgin tropical forests, modern and happening cities and above all, its friendly people. Home to the IT capital of India – Bangalore -- the cosmopolitan city in the true sense of the term, is famous for its energetic nightlife and westernized lifestyle. Rapid industrialisation has not drastically altered the pace of life here, which is comparatively unhurried. This coupled with the agreeable climate, the greenery, the cleanliness and the sense of order; makes Bangalore India's most congenial City. Make Bangalore your base camp and transport yourself to the magnificent past, discover the state's wildlife treasures or relax in the lap of a cool hill station.

Economically, Karnataka is one of the most successful states in India. It has attracted a lot of foreign investments in sectors ranging from lab equipment to food processing. But, it is in the information technology and telecommunications sector that the state scores highest. Partnering Andhra Pradesh at the head of India’s much touted ‘IT Revolution’, Karnataka is the home of India’s tech giants, Wipro and Infosys. Traditional industries include aircraft manufacturing, heavy electrical machinery, iron & steel and cement also have major plants in the state.
