Karnataka Connect

Karnataka Connect

Of kingdoms, coffee & cultures

Between north India’s desert cultures, Central India’s jungles and south India’s temple and backwaters’ trails – there are a few detours for the discerning traveller; Karnataka is one such detour. From its serene, less-crowded coasts to its forested escarpments, from its bustling urban hubs to its quiet tribal interiors, from its religious monuments to its ancient ruins – Karnataka offers a tapestry of experiences.

Our Karnataka Connect starts off in Hyderabad – a city showcasing South India’s finest Mughal architecture, continues past the bustling urban heart of Bangalore, Chikmagalur’s coffee plantation landscape thriving on seeds stolen by a Sufi saint, Hampi’s 14th Century Vijayanagara Empire ruins, the glorious temples of Badami, Pattadakal and Aihole, and ends on the sunny beaches of Goa.

Hyderabad

Day: 1-2

arow

You can connect to Karnataka, through Hyderabad. While it doesn't fall within Karnataka logistically, it is an easy point of access to the state. Hyderabad, literally ‘the lion’s abode’ was south India’s contender to rival the Mughal splendor of Delhi, Agra and Fatehpuri Sikri. Hyderabad was a capital of the Nizam rulers, who mastered the art of creating artificial, cascade lakes from rainwater runoff – some of which still survive to-date, and was a splendid city of lakes and tanks and later a diamond and pearl trading centre. Of the Mughal empires legacies, the most famous one today is the cuisine – Hyderabad offers a mouth-watering array of regal specialties from biryani to kebabs, and a riot of meat preparations tempered with spices.
