I am not a fan of hot places but Mangaluru stole my heart. We were here for four days, Christmas being one of the days and the city just transforms. Mangaluru is an otherwise calm and serene city with the obvious tourist attractions, but it has a life that you'll only get glimpses of if you don't look enough.
St. Aloysius's Chapel, Milagres Church, Kadri Manjunath Temple, Aloyseum, Sultan Battery, Mangaladevi Temple, Panambur Beach, Someshwar Beach, Ullal Beach, Kadri Park, Someshwara Beach, Venkataramana Temple, St. Mary's Island, etc.
We were here for four days and despite travelling through and through from morning till evening, we didn't quite cover up everything in the city but yes, we did cover most of it, of which we are quite proud, and there are so many things that an enthusiastic tourist can only remember and not recall enough.
