Sacred & Religious Sites · Castles · Gardens
Although most know it for its giant capital, Karnataka encompasses many different land features, from sandy beaches in the coastal east to the wild mountains and thriving farmlands deep in the interior. Home to nearly 9 million people, the city of Bangalore makes a great starting point of a Karnataka tour, packed with temples, churches, shopping malls, and thousands of fast food eateries and restaurants. If you prefer to see the less hectic side of Karnataka, head to Hampi, where you can discover the remains of the once-powerful Vijayanagara Empire scattered across a sprawling World Heritage Site.
