in Kannada, Koiyal in Konkani, or Maikala in Beary
bashe) is the chief port city of the Indian state
of Karnataka. It is located about 350 kilometres
(220 mi) west of the state capital, Bangalore.
Mangalore lies between the Arabian Sea and the
Western Ghat mountain ranges, and is the administrative
headquarters of the Dakshina Kannada (formerly
South Canara) district in south western Karnataka.
Mangalore derives its name from the local Hindu
Goddess Mangaladevi. It developed as a port on
the Arabian Searemaining, to this day, a
major port of India. Lying on the backwaters of
the Netravati and Gurupura rivers, Mangalore is
often used as a staging point for sea traffic
along the Malabar Coast. The city has a tropical
climate and lies in the path of the Arabian Sea
branch of the South-West monsoons.
Mangalore's port handles 75 per cent of India's
coffee exports and the bulk of the nation's cashew

the Kadambas, Vijayanagar dynasty, Chalukyas,
Rashtrakutas, Hoysalas, and the Portuguese. The
city was a source of contention between the British
and the Mysore rulers, Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan.
Eventually annexed by the British in 1799, Mangalore
remained part of the Madras Presidency until India's
independence in 1947. The city was unified with
the state of Mysore (now called Karnataka) in
Mangalore is demographically diverse with several
languages, including Tulu, Konkani, Kannada, and
Beary bashe commonly spoken, and is the largest
city of Tulu Nadu region. The city's landscape
is characterised by rolling hills, coconut palms,
freshwater streams, and hard red-clay tiled-roof
buildings. In an exercise carried out by the Urban
Development Ministry under the national urban
sanitation policy, Mangalore was placed as the
eighth cleanest city in the country. In Karnataka,
it is second after Mysore.
