Karnataka (abbr. KA) originally known as the state of Mysore was formed on 1 November 1956. Karnataka is a state in the south western region of India. It is the largest state in South India and seventh largest in India. While Karnataka doesn’t have a very long coastline, it has some of the most beautiful beaches in India. Some of the popular beaches are Karwar, Gokarna, Murudeshwar, Malpe, Ullal and Mangalore.
The heart of Karnataka brims with temples boasting Hoysala architecture, echoes of Carnatic music, bright flowers waiting to be picked to garland a deity, and the aroma of mouthwatering food.
