    Next, we will visit a grand modern temple in Kudroli dedicated to Gokarnanatha, founded by the social reformer Sri Narayana Guru who promoted the idea that all people are equal before God. The temple complex is large, showing diverse influences, with many interesting legends displayed. It includes a marriage hall.

    After visiting these two very different temples, we will drive through the city centre, seeing daily life in Mangalore. Our next stop is the bustling Central Market wholesale bazaar, where agricultural produce (fruits and vegetables) from the surrounding countryside is brought each day for sale. If you would also like to visit the flower market or the fish market, please let the guide know and they will add it to your tour.
