Have you ever visited to the “land of languages” Karnataka?

Hello 🙂 A warm welcome to our daily Friday blog. As we said earlier every week you will get to read a new concept and facts of each states and cities of our country India through our specially handmade designer themed kettles. Come, let’s continue our esteemed journey of “Incredible India” by taking a stop KARNATKA.

What comes in your mind when you read the word Karnataka?  A largest state in southwest India with Arabian Sea coastlines. The capital, Bengaluru (formerly Bangalore), a high-tech hub known for its shopping and nightlife. To the southwest, Mysore a home to lavish temples including Mysore Palace.

The whole of South India is covered in carpets of green plantations. But it’s Karnataka that produces the largest amount of coffee. The first plantation was cultivated in Chikmagalur centuries ago.

The Mysore Palace is only the second most-visited place in India after the wonder Taj Mahal. The regal beauty and epitome of royalty in Mysore is the pride of the whole state. Mysore is home to lavish temples including Mysore Palace, former seat of the region’s maharajas. Hampi, once the medieval Vijayanagara empire’s capital, contains ruins of Hindu temples, elephant stables and a stone chariot. 

Karnataka is generally known for the most number of waterfalls in India. The state is known to harbor in excess of 35 waterfalls spread across. In Karnataka, Bijapur, district is known as “the river district” also known as ‘Gol Gumbaz’ is fascinatingly the land of 5 rivers as well. The rivers flowing through this district include Krishna, Bhima, Doni, Malaprabha and Ghataprabha. Isn’t this beautiful and serene. One must visit this place, when touring Karnataka.

Kannada is the official language of the state of Karnataka. The fact that there are over 13 languages spoken across the state like, Tulu, Lambadi, Urdu, Marathi, Konkani, Malayalam and many more, with Kannada being the most spoken language followed by Tamil and Telugu.

Where there is so many languages spoken, there is fact of having many diverse religions, culture, art and ethnics. Cultural excellence has always been a pride and part of Karnataka. Purandara Dasa is known to be the main pillars of Carnatic Music. In fact, Pandit Bhimsen Gururaj Joshi also belongs to Karnataka who is the father and pillar of Hindustani Classical Music.

Wait, we are not finished yet! There is an interesting fact of Karnataka, The Bangalore Club revealed an interesting and odd fact about former British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill. According to a ledger revealed by the club, Churchill owes INR 13 to the club in unpaid bills.

So what do you’ll think? The origins of Karnataka, the monuments, natural splendor, history, attractions, people – what all lies within Karnataka has more reasons than one to wonder about!
