My hometown is Mangalore which is often called the “gateway of Karnataka” as it is the only city of Karnataka that has accessibility from all four routes that is air water road and rail.. It lies on the backwaters of the rivers nethravathi and gurupura that encircle the entire city. Its landscape is characterized by rolling hills coconut palms freshwater streams and hard red clay tiled roof buildings. It is the 8th cleanest city of the country! Coconut palm and ashoka trees comprise the vegetation of this beautiful and green city. There are a number of beaches such as the panambur someshwara mulki surathkal and mukka beach which provide with some breathtakingly beautiful sunset views and pleasant breeze. Mangalore is a diverse city with several languages which include Kannada Konkani Tulu Beary bashe English Hindi Urdu Malayalam and many more… People here believe in a number of religions and yet live in peace and harmony. Mangalore produces a variety of products such as sandalwood rice turmeric bettlenut cinnamon and much more...
