. . . Manjeshwar . . .

Even though Manjeshwar is officially in Kerala, most people belong to Karnataka and speak Kannada and Tulu languages as the Karnataka border is only a few kilometres away.

There are two towns in Manjeshwar. The old Manjeshwar is on the western side of the railway station. Most of the old temples and mosques are on this side near the beach. The new Manjeshwar is on the national highway on the eastern side of the railway station. New establishments and eateries are appearing every day on this side of Manjeshwar.

Buses are available from Mangalore and Kozhikode. There is an airport at Mangalore. Manjeshwar has its own major railway station.

Autorikshaws take you anywhere in the town for less than one hundred rupees. The minimum charge is only ₹20.00 for one km distance. You can see them busy all the day because of being cheap and accessible. But autorikshaws are cheap only in North Kerala. Don’t expect the same experience across the border in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and South Kerala. Over there, Autorikshaws are considered luxury vehicles and a good bargaining exercise is essential before you hire one.
