The state of Karnataka with a population of 37 million was earlier known as Mysore State. The life of the people of Karnataka is molded by three major schools of thought that evolved through the centuries, from the medieval period. They are the Vaishnav faith, devotees of God Vishnu; The Jain Digambara school; and the Muslims. The Karnataka ethos is essentially a blend of these three systems. Karnataka is dotted with remains of lost civilizations; Thousand-year-old Hindu temples, decorated with carvings of amazing virtuosity; grandiose Moslem monuments; tribal nomads, large Sandalwood forests, and elephant hordes.
Bangalore & Mysore
Bangalore The capital of modern Karnataka established in 1537. Today, it is a sprawling city, one of the fastest growing in India, attracting industry and commerce. Bangalore also has a distinct British flavor. The old connections remain evident in such names as Richmond Town, Cox Town, Fraser Town and Russel Market.
Mysore centered on its Palace and Museum built in the Indo-Saracenic style and the temple dedicated to goddess Chamundeshwari in the Chamundi Hills, past a wonderful monolithic Nandi (the sacred Bull who is the constant companion and vehicle of the God Shiva.)
