Ruins of Barkur

Near Udupi and Kundapur, in Karnataka

Kattale Basadi in Barkur, near Udupi, an ancient Jain temple, or basadi in Karnataka, Udupi district - One of the ancient ruins and structures in Karnataka, India
It was one of those days when you have some free time on your hand but not a clue what to do with it. Having a camera in our hands, having nothing better to do that day, we set on a photographic road trip right away. We visited Barkur, the ancient capital of the Tulu kingdom, which has a glorious historical background, and one of the several places where only a fraction of the ancient structures still remain.

A blissful morning by the Batapady beach

At Thalapady, Ullal - near Mangalore, in Karnataka

A blissful morning by the Batapady beach, near Thalapady, Ullal, Mangalore, Karnataka, India
At first, it sounded like a crazy idea, but hey, “anything to rid the life of its monotony”, I thought, pondering on the idea of visiting the beach one early morning. It was one of the umpteen interesting ideas our Mr. Initiative, Nataraj had come up with, and it did turn out to be an excellent one!
