Attention. In Karnataka, we go visiting places which require from us a lot of attention, because of the cultural context. Like in Tamil Nadu, many ancient places, mostly temples, are included in any circuit. For that, we mention a lot of deity names and specific terms of indian architecture. To make things easier and to enjoy best the visit, you may get some help by clicking on the icon in order to read in the glossary the definition of the word which precedes this icon. This definition is found in the thin frame in the lower part of your screen.

For a tourist, Karnataka offers the most sumptuous visits. Ancient monuments, mainly temples, display, here, a kind of exuberance and an unequalled refinement. Go there and make yourself your opinion...

But, once again, like in Tamil Nadu, one has to accept to forget his own usual references and to watch for a while. Don't be in a hurry ! The hurried tourist will definitely not really enjoy the savour of these incredible temples where continuously vibrates the whole hindu life.
