Railway Station Road, Castlerock, Karnataka 581121, India
Presently known as the Dandeli Anshi Tiger Reserve, this is a small village in the Uttar Kannada District of Karnataka. This village is exactly on the Western Ghats and shares boundaries with Goa which was till 1961, a Portuguese Colony. This is an old village which is a good example of the British- Indian colonies and the Portuguese- Goan Colonies. The Dudhsagar Falls is a major attraction here and the lush green forests of deciduous trees. This was once also a manganese mining destination but mining is now banned here. The very old railway station here is also a very famous one out here with an old castle style tunnel. The Railway station is known as the Castle Rock Railway Station.

Weekend Getaways from Castlerock 

This is the capital of the state of Goa and is probably the smallest state capital. Panaji is also the headquarters of the North Goa District and is situated on the banks of the Mandovi River Estuary is the Tiswada Region. The more popular name is Panaji but Panjim is also a commonly used term. This was the name by which the Portuguese used to address this city. When the whole of India got independence, Goa was still under the colonial rule of the Portuguese who freed it a number of years later. The Portuguese effect is what you will get in each and every thing of Goa and Panjim too. The attractions here are the lovely white church, the food that you will get here and of course the different types of building lined on the sides of the narrow streets. These houses are the remains of the various clans who have ruled here including the Latins and the Portuguese. The houses look beautiful and brightly coloured and many of them have simple yet pretty wrought iron balconies too. Many of these are now either resorts for budget concious travellers or restaurants for the ones who love to taste Portuguese and Goan cuisine.
