I am sure once you visit this place you will fall in love with it. You would always cherish memories of your stay at point. It is a place for everyone, old to infants. You have different experience every time you visit. One can start the day with jogging and unwind in the evening by taking a stroll. Must visit place in Manipal.

Diamond studded statue of Lord Krishna inside the sanctum sanctorum. There will be lenghty queue of devotees, so be prepared to spend considerable time. Once inside, it's good to know that no one pushes you and you're given enough time to pray and take a good look at the lord. Suggest to wear decent clothes. Avoid shorts. After the darshan, its strongly suggested to have the prasadam in the form of annadaanam. It was an amazing experience. We were lucky to get the darshan and prasadam and get the blessings of an old priest in the temple.

Pattadakal is a bit off the regular tourist track for non-Indian tourists, and that's a real shame! This place (UNESCO World Heritage site) is amazing! It has a whole series of beautifully maintained and landscaped temples -- all significantly older than the more touristed Hampi -- and is an amazing place to learn about the evolution of temple architecture (because you can see it in each subsequent temple). Well preserved sculptures, and architectural features (like how did the water get out of the temple?) make the visit interesting to visitors interested in art, religion, engineering, history, and all of us who simply enjoy beautiful places.

Despite Manipal being a place full of life, you sometimes need a place to lose yourself and appreciate nature around you.Manipal Lake is such a place located away from the hustle and bustle of the campus.A well maintained lake due to the efforts of VSO Volunteers who clean the surrounding every now and then.A serene environment for those long morning walks and a great place for bird watching in Manipal. They also have rowing boats for kids. A must visit when in Manipal.

This is located about a couple of KM from Udupi. Island is located in the Arabian Sea and you need to get into a barge/Boat for reaching this place. Island consists of beautiful Rock Structures and extensively used by the film Industry. In some of the locations, the rock structure is so beautiful and it looks like the Lava is coming out of the earth and just overflowing or dripping. If it is developed properly, this could be developed as a first class tourist spot. Nevertheless it is a good place to spend an evening.

My friend suggested to take my friends who were visiting us in Mangalore to this place. It open ed up to visitors only late last year. This heritage village was a dream of a bank employee who had an eye for antiques. He has single-handedly envisaged and given us what life would have been in the 17th or 18th century. By rebuilding houses, he has created a village showing what life was in a Brahmin, Shetty, christian and Muslim houses. Also, there are paintings of Ravi Varma Museum showing how he printed pictures in the good old days. The highlight is that it is a guided 2 hours tour of 15 visitors at a time. The guides are very involved and give a lot of information and don't mind if it takes a little longer. Very friendly and helpful guides. Price is INR 500/- per person. Closed on Mondays. Definitely a must-see. Hats off to Mr. Vijaynath Shenoy whose project this is. Unfortunately the day we went, he was not there. But he does visit the place every day.
