Few things in life compare to the excitement of planning a holiday- the endless research, checking and cross-checking itineraries, and the much-awaited break. Our travel gazes continue to linger overseas, however, breathtaking landscapes, culture, and history live much closer to home. Resting between the Kannad coast, Deccan Plateau, and the Western Ghats is the state of Karnataka. Travel to Karnataka for its hills and temples, coffee estates and waterfalls, forests and riversides– all interwoven into one rich tapestry. Karnataka is incredibly welcoming, allowing you to experience it at the pace you like.
If the pulsating vibe of the Silicon Valley of India is what excites you, Bangalore won’t disappoint. Cosmopolitan and bursting with possibilities, pleasant weather the whole year through- that’s Bangalore! An urban setting with the soul of a hill station. But if an actual hill station or getaway is what you’re looking for, there’s Coorg, with its famous coffee estates and Kabini for some wildlife spotting, among many others. Revisit history at the incomparable and surreal Hampi, containing expansive ruins of the medieval kingdom of Viyanajagar. Other destinations for history and architecture buffs are Mysore, Belur, and the fort town of Hospet.
Do you thrive on the experience of both the journey as well as the destination? In that case, the beautiful city of Raichur should be your next travel stop! Located at a distance of 469 km from Bangalore, Raichur remains unexplored most of the year. A historical town, whose stories go back to periods before the Common Era, it is dotted with ancient sites and monuments. The city has seen countless dynasties come and go: the Mauryas, Chalukyas, Cholas, and Mughals.
For a first-hand experience of the city’s royal legacies and traditions, a visit to the Raichur fort is a must. The influence of the Mughals is evident in structures like the Ek-Minar-Ki-Masjid, the Fort Jami Masjid, and the Tomb of Saint Pir Sailani Shah. Witness the city and its people in their full splendor during the numerous festivals celebrated here. The Naradagadde pilgrimage in March will show you glimpses of ancient rituals and spiritual traditions practiced in the city. The Karahunnime festival marks the start of the monsoons, a time when the cultural essence of the city is at its peak. The best time to experience Raichur is between November and March.
