Indian States Information

Karnataka

Mysore Palace - Karnataka, IndiaThe state of Karnataka, formerly the princely state of Mysore, is home to a fascinating legacy of richly carved temples, imposing mosques and trappings of a royal past. It has some of the most interesting historic architecture in India.

Karnataka is a state of strong contrasts, with the modern industrialised city of Bangalore at one extreme and expanses of rural farming areas at the other. It appeals equally to temple lovers, wildlife enthusiasts, trekkers and beach bums.

The state consists of a narrow coastal strip backed by the monsoon-drenched Western Ghats and a drier, cooler interior plateau that turns arid in the far north. Andhra Pradesh is towards the east, the Arabian Sea to the west, Maharashtra and Goa to the north and northwest and Kerala and Tamil Nadu to the South. It is a major producer of coffee, sandalwood, spices and betelnut, and supplies 60% of the country's silk.
