• See a different side of India in Davangere

    2010-04-27

    Thanks to a string of recent films including Namesake, Slumdog Millionaire and The Darjeeling Limited, India has been experiencing a bit of a tourism boom in recent years. Travelers have been ensnared by the beauty and mystery of the storied land and have flocked to tourist hubs like Mumbai and Delhi. Yet those individuals seeking to experience a piece of true Indian culture might enjoy a peaceful trip to the city of Davangere.

    Located in the southwestern state of Karnataka, Davangere is a fast developing city that still retains much of a smaller village's charms. It has been dubbed the Manchester of Karnataka due to its ties to the textile industry, and it sits on the stoic and beautiful Kunduvada Kere Lake that provides both an excellent view and the city's drinking water.

    The city has much to offer tourists seeking a relaxed environment rich in nature. The vistas from atop the Bathi Gudda hill are amazing and well worth the hike to the top, and the nearby aqueduct designed by Sir M. Wishweshwariah is a true marvel of architecture.

    Cultural travelers will certainly want to stop by the nearby town of Harihar, which is home to a beautiful and traditional temple.
