To the south by the shores of Arabian Sea is located the port
town of Mangalore, a rambling, green, friendly town that is a
serene getaway, a little off the beaten track and ideal for
those who want a slightly laidback sort of vacation. The
approach of Mangalore by road or rail is as eye-filling as by
air, with rolling hills, verdant vistas, sparkling streams
gurgling to rendezvous with the sea, and the smell of salt water
getting ever stronger as the coast draws nearer. The landscape
is dotted with tiled-roof buildings, topped with the famous
Mangalore tiles made with the local hard red clay, and built
with laterite, a soft rock easily sliced into large building
blocks Some of the old houses even have elaborate wood-work.
