Heritage of Karnataka

Explore Karnataka's deep-rooted cultural heritage through these DH stories. We look back at a few stories that spoke about the land of splendid waterfalls, reservoirs and heritage sites.

Here are a few "well-crafted" stories from our writers:

Streets that spell craft

Belagavi, also known as Venugrama or "bamboo village", has a few lanes that are dedicated to specific professions. Swatee Jog takes a peek into the life of artisans who reside in the popular streets of Belagavi like Tambat Galli (coppersmiths), Saraf Galli (jewellers), Kalhaigar Galli (re-tinning).

Palmyra of the Deccan

Apart from its imposing monuments, Vijayapura is known for well-planned infrastructure. Rijutha Jaganathan discusses the features of some of these Adil Shahi structures.

Where divergent styles merge

Davanagere, the "Village of Lakes" has a lot to offer including the popular "benne dose". This DH story explores Davangere as the region where different architectural schools came together resulting in unique temples with unusual plans.

In the gardens of Banavasi

Meera Iyer's travelogue on Banavasi takes you deep through the rainforests of the Western Ghats. Banavasi, an ancient town with glorious history, has always been a centre of art and culture.

Dasara through the ages...

Cradle of temple architecture

The captivating temples and prehistoric monuments in the Malaprabha Valley of Bagalkot district not only attract travellers but also triggers curiosity among researchers, writes Srikumar M Menon.
