Memories of Mangalore

It was an interesting weekend, to say the least. Monday comes around again and I’m left with memories of the lovely seaf00d (we tried everything from prawns, kingfish, seer fish to pomfret!), the beautiful seaside by Bekal and the endless walk along the renovated fort, the sunset we caught on the way back to Mangalore.

The bullocks race festival where man and animal raced furiously in the muddy slush, in what continues to be a tradition in the state. Before that we witnessed other interesting events like running races and tug of war (everything held in a mud/slush filled field!). And to end the visit, some time spent at Mangalore’s Liquid Lounge, a really cool place, where you can have a drink at prices unimaginable in Bangalore!

At the races!
The traditional bullock racing festival in Mangalore, Kambala, is an annual event

  1. Hi Anita and everybody out there…

    I have been a mute reader and admirer of this page for the past several weeks…Its been a pleasure going through your blog…

    guys, to start with, i take this opportunity to inform you all that, self and a two of my friends plan to go to Manali between Jan 13th and Jan 18th for a Skiing stint (we are all novice at this). We are yet to book our tickets (stay and other essentials have been arranged). we will be flying from B/lre to delhi and delhi to kulu. if anybody is interested in joining us, you could reach out to me at

    Anita, thank you once again for this wonderful experience that you let us peek through…whenever, i look at your pages/updates, it always feels like a sniff of fresh air passing through in the otherwise totally congested and cramped life that one undergoes…

  2. Tell me one thing you have to tell me…Are you a Magician…..Your photographs are sooo mesmerizing..serene….I want more..

  3. humm, like the bullock racing @Kambala, is there a set on your flicker, can’t resist to see more…

    Guess I am an other one of your silent readers :-). I thought of scribbling something coz , I happen to come from a place near to bekal. I am sure you would have enjoyed bekal. Couple of other places that you could have visited are “ranipuram” and this riverside resort called “nalanda resorts”. I guess the resort guys arrange house boat stays as well. It’s very cheap compard to the house boats in alleppey.

    BTW your pics are simply amazing. keep posting ’em



  5. Mangalore and especially the Ghat section preceding it are a view to behold.

    One section that many people may not have explored is the Bisle ghat section. In case u get a chance, do visit that place.

    There are amazing view points.. absolutely beautiful 🙂
