        The Karnataka state was formed in 1955 on the basis of Kannada language. With old Mysore state, four Kannada based districts of Bombay; two of Madras, three of Nizam and Kurg were included to constitute this state. To the North of Karnataka we find Maharashtra; to the west Goa; to the south Kerala and Tamil Nadu and to the east is Andhra Pradesh. In Karnataka three great rivers such as Cauvery, Tungabhadra and Krishna originate from the Western Ghats. Western Ghats has enhanced the beauty of Karnataka. Equally attractive is the 320km long sea beach (Karabali coast) along the Arabian Sea all through the west between Goa and Kerala. There are many beautiful sea beaches which attracts tourists from different corners of the world. Still this golden colored beach is neglected in the map of tourism.

        Karnataka is famous for the sculpture and architectural design of trio temple-Badami-Aihole-Pattadakal, built under the Chalukya Kings during 6th-8th century. Temples of superb architectural pattern of Somnathpur-Belur-Halebid, made by the Hoysal kings during 11th-14th century; Gomoteswar the world’s highest monolithic statue, made of stone at Shravanabelgola under the patronage of the Ganga kings are the glories of Karnataka state. The museum city Bijapur in Karnataka bears the mark of medieval Islamic architecture.

        Karnataka has developed as a modern industrial state. Sandalwood, furniture, soap, oil, talcum powder and incense sticks are produced. These are widely appreciated throughout the world. Tourists are also eager for Bangalore silk. The head office and the main factory of HMT (Hindustan Machine Tools) are in Karnataka. Healthy climate, beautiful gardens, waterfalls, wildlife sanctuaries- all this attracts tourists to a large extent. So it will be not an exaggeration to say that Karnataka is the paradise for tourists.

         The Brindavan Garden of Mysore attracts large numbers of tourists. The few interesting tourists spot in Karnataka are Mysore Palace, Jagmohan Palace or Jaya Chamrajendra Art Gallery, Chamrajendra Zoological Garden, Lalita Mahal, Chamundi hill etc. Bangalore is famous for its botanical garden Lalbagh, Fort, Summer palace of Tipu, Bull Temple (oldest temple of Nandi on Bagal hill to the south of the city), Sree Gavi Gangadhareswar cave built by Kempe Gowda (superb example of Astronomical and Architectural Craftsmanship) etc.

Of them notables are the Kadamba, Chalukya, Ganga, Rashtrakoot, Hoysal and Vijaynagar Kings. At last, in 1947, the year of Indian Independence, the then king Jaya Chamarajendra Wadeyar decided to join the Indian Union on receiving full support of his subjects. In 1950 K.C.Reddy became the first Chief Minister of this state.
