  3. Hastha Shilpa in Manipal has many heritage houses restored to their original form from all over Karnataka. Very unique museum I have ever visited. Note this is in Manipal though. Lot of foreign tourists also visit this place.

    If you are going to Udupi/Manipal spend some time in Manipal campus where you can see students from all over.

    More info on Udupi/Manipal at Udupipages.com – they even have one day – three day plans.

    it is karkala not karkal, btw. (though it has nothing to do with ‘car kala’ or ‘car artistry’).

    enjoyed the nice article as always.
