    MANGALORE MAGIC

    SHIP: Celebrity Constellation

    Arriving Mangalore at 0900 hrs on Saturday 15 December, 2018
    Departing Mangalore same day at 1800 hrs

    How the tour is run: Mangalore is a small port town, and there isn’t a big English-speaking tourism industry there. Full time professional guides are not available in this town. What we provide are trained English-speaking escorts for the tour, along with car and driver and a tour itinerary of places to visit which we have checked out and visited and think you will find interesting.

    OPTION – I: Karkala, Moodbidri, Local Bazaar and Farm Visit

    In this tour we will go on a drive to Karkala and Moodabidri, two sleepy towns situated around an hour’s drive from Mangalore. The drive is interesting once you leave the port behind, and you will see many coconut trees, arecanut trees, etc.

    Between the 14th and 16th centuries, this area near Mangalore became a great centre of learning and pilgrimage for members of the ancient Jain faith. In Karkala the giant statue of Gomateshwara attracts Jain pilgrims from far and wide. It is on top of a hill and provides panoramic views of the countryside. In Moodabidri, we will visit the famous 1000-pillared Jain Temple dedicated to Chandranatha. This is the largest Jain temple in coastal Karanataka, with richly carved pillars; and no two pillars in this temple are alike.

    We will also visit the local bazaar at Moodbidri, which has visitors from the surrounding areas, buying fruits, vegetables, spices, clothes, food items and other items of daily use. It is a nice way to see daily life in this part of the country.

    This area of Mangalore is known for its pineapples and other tropical fruits. We will visit a working fruit farm with a bamboo grove. We will walk through the farm, learn about the various spices, trees, fruits and other products grown at the farm. You can taste their famous pineapples if you wish, and take a restroom break. They also offer spices for sale if you would like to buy some.

    Plan for the day:

    • Pickup from docks at 10:00 a.m.
    • Transfer to Karkala 1hr 15 mins, drive to the top of the hill to see the Jain Gomateshwara Statue and views of the green countryside
    • 11:00 to 11:20 transfer to Soans Farm, visit the farm
    • 12:00 noon transfer to 1000-pillar temple (15 minutes), visit the temple and the local market at Moodbidri
    • 2:30 p.m. depart back to docks by 3:30 pm (you can bring sandwiches or snacks from the ship to eat on the ride back)

    Notes: Please bring an extra pair of socks as shoes are not allowed in the temples, and the temple stone flooring can be hot in areas exposed to the sun. September is the tail end of the monsoon season, so hot stone floors may not be a big problem for you. However it may rain (although probably not much). Please wear sensible footwear accordingly. An umbrella would be useful protection from both sun and rain. Soans Farm has clean toilets. Please bring packed sandwiches and snacks from the ship to eat on the drive back.

    Cost: The pricing is as follows:

    Rs 14,500 using a Toyota Innova car (Max 4 Persons)

    Rs 21,500 using Tempo Traveler (Max 8 persons)

    Inclusions: English-speaking escort, AC transport, driver with cell phone, fuel, parking charges, tolls, bottled water, all taxes.

    Excludes: Entrance ticket Rs 200 extra per person for Soans Farm, meals, insurance, tips.

    OPTION – II: Mangalore City Exploration

    We will begin with a visit to Kadri Manjunatha Temple, which is more than 1000 years old. This temple, built in the 10th / 11th century, has several sacred bathing tanks which people visit before praying. You can see the Mangalore-style tiled roofs and courtyards for an understanding of traditional temple architecture of the area.

    Next, we will visit a grand modern temple in Kudroli dedicated to Gokarnatha, founded by the great social reformer Sri Narayana Guru, who rejected caste-based differences promoted the idea that all people are equal before God. The temple complex is large, showing diverse influences, with many interesting legends displayed. It includes a marriage hall.

    After visiting these two temples, we will drive through the city centre, seeing the streets and daily life in the city. Our next stop is the Central Market wholesale bazaar, where agricultural produce (fruits and vegetables) from the surrounding countryside is brought each day for sale.

    From the market, we will go to Saint Aloysius Chapel, which remains even today, a unique case of Italian art in India. Built by the Jesuits in 1890, the chapel was painted by the Italian Jesuit Antonio Moscheni, and attracts thousands of visitors every year.

    For lunch we will visit a specialty restaurant to taste the famous Mangalore cuisine (you can have either seafood or meat-based or vegetarian lunch, depending on your preference). You can read more about the cuisine here.

    After lunch, we will visit a cashew processing factory. India is one of the leading producers, processors and exporters of cashews in the world, accounting for 65% of the world’s exports.

    Plan for the day:

    • Pickup from docks at 10:00 a.m.
    • Transfer to Mangalore 30 mins, visit Kadri Manjunatha and Kudroli Gokarnatha Temples
    • 12:30 to 2:00 Visit the Central Market wholesale bazaar for fruits and vegetables, and Aloysius Chapel
    • 2:00 to 3:00 Lunch at a specialty restaurant to taste the famous Mangalore cuisine (you can have either seafood or meat-based or vegetarian lunch, depending on your preference)
    • 3:00 to 4:00 - transfer to Cashew processing factory (30 mins), and tour of the cashew processing (30 mins)
    • We will visit the Pilikula Nisarga Dhama, to see the traditional Guthu House. http://www.pilikula.com/guthu_house.html There are also other craft demonstrations in Pilikula which you can see if interested and if time permits.”
    • Drop to docks by 4:30 p.m.
    • If you would also like to visit the flower market on Car Street, or the fish market, please let the guide know and they will add it to your tour.

    Cost: The pricing is as follows:

    Rs 14,500 using a Toyota Innova car (Max 4 Persons)

    Rs 21,500 using Tempo Traveler (Max 8 persons)
