the southwest. Topographically, Karnataka consists of the Arabian Sea Coast,
Western Ghats, Deccan Plateau, and Eastern Ghats. Karnataka's history
dates back to the 3rd century BC. The succession of able administrators
from the Hoysalas, Chalukyas and the mighty Vijayanagara rulers, to the
arrival of the Mughals in the 17th century and the British in the 18th
century have contributed to the mix of culture and heritage that is as
rich as it is ancient.
