Share your Hometown and fave things to do around your city!

Know my dream land, my city, my hometown.

Mangalore , officially known as Mangaluru , is a major port city of the Indian state of Karnataka. It is located between the Arabian Sea and the Western Ghats about 352 km west of Bangalore, the state capital, 20 km north of Karnataka–Kerala border, 297 km south of Goa. Mangalore is the state’s only city to have all four modes of transport—air, road, rail and sea.

My Hometown is Udupi , which is situated about 55 km north from Industrial hub Mangalore.

You can check more about Mangalore here [Mangalore - Wikipedia]

The ONE place where the food is at its best (though I am a vegetarian), but this place is filled with delicious non veg for all those non veg lovers. You can get the most wonderful and lip smacking varieties of Fishes. Try it :wink:

Just like Goa, you can find the the most splendid beach’s nearby like Kapu Beach, Malpe Beach, Mattu Beach, Kudlu Theertha Falls (The best, pictures below :blush:).


For me this is my hometown, my vacation spot, my fav place and I would never come back from Udupi without taking some time off at Kodi beach (we have sea walk :blush: again the best). I can go for a jog, meditate and just time off alone, can stay there till night doing nothing. Just watching the water flow.

More about the beach - Kodi beach is unique because of clean lite golden color sand. On the eastern side of this narrow land stretch is the ‘Sangama’ of River Suvarna with River Seetaa. This Sangama is spread over several kilometers and the view is fascinating. Either side of these rivers are fully covered by evergreen coconut gardens. Scenic beauty is breath taking.

Also lastly,
Do not forget to visit Pabbas (Mangalore) and have the most delicious Ice-cream thali watch this.

Go on! Share us your Hometown or place you love a lot.

What a great idea @chaitra.p.rao! While I’ve lived in Columbia, SC for the last 23 years, I grew up in a wonderful little town in northwest Arkansas called Siloam Springs. By the way, that’s Ar-Can-Saw - not Ar-Kansas. :slight_smile: This little video from the local college sums it up better than i ever could.

I know it is not a publicly known tourist attraction place and you want to try something new, but if you are coming to California, definitely visit Ushur HQ.

I heard people there are very friendly and welcome everybody. Ask @simha.sadasiva for a couple of wineries that he likes to take our visitors to and they all love it :slight_smile:

By the way, from the office, you can have a wonderful view of the bay and 101 highway (for those who want to see more highways when traveling :wink: )

It looks very cool @amir.m. Thank you for sharing this picture. I think Ushur has created an office environment where people love to work. In my opinion, Ushur Bangalore also has the best environment and I see even Ushur HQ is. :smile:

I have a vacation place now on my bucket list, thanks @Chaitra.P.Rao for sharing this beautiful post!

My hometown is Mumbai (a.k.a Bombay until 1995), a city that never sleeps. A city where lakhs of people migrate with a dream in their hearts. Mumbai is the capital city of an Indian State called Maharashtra. The name Mumbai is derived from Mumba or Maha-Amba — the name of the patron Goddess Mumbadevi of the native Koli community. The local language of Mumbai is Marathi. Mumbai is also known as the Financial Centre of India. Mumbai lies on the Konkan coast on the west coast of India and has a deep natural harbor. It is also home to some of India’s premier scientific and nuclear institutes. The city is also home to Bollywood and Marathi cinema industries.

Things to do in Mumbai:

  1. Visit the Gateway of India
  2. Watch the Sunset on Marine Drive
  3. Drive across the Bandra-Worli Sea Link
  4. Take Pictures of the Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai
  5. Meditate at the Global Vipassana Pagoda
  6. Check Out the Shree Siddhivinayak Temple
  7. And last but not the least, Taste Mumbai’s Famous Street Foods

Here are some attractive and scenic pictures from my city:
