Mangalore

Sort By

  • A major port on the Arabian Sea located in Southern India, Mangalore derives its name from a goddess. The city has a rich historical past, part of it even dating back to major epics that are the bedrock of the Hindu mythological pantheon. Mangalore has 11th century temples, scintillating beaches dotted with coconut palm trees, museums and lighthouses. Red-roofed houses against the lush greenery provide a much-needed escape from the ordinary.

As shore excursions to be offered in this port are not yet confirmed, below is a list of those offered previously. We make every effort to have excursions finalized at least 240 days in advance of sailing, and often sooner, so please check back regularly.

  • Chakrapani Ayurveda and the Gokarnath Temple

    Enjoy an enlightening consultation with a holistic Ayurveda doctor and delve further into the local culture by visiting a bustling marketplace and a Hindu temple.

    After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive at a center where Ayurveda medicine is practiced. This holistic healing system was developed in India more than 3,000 years ago to promote good health by keeping the mind, body and spirit in balance.

    After consulting with an Ayurveda doctor, you may receive treatment to ease whatever imbalances or conditions that the doctor may find. Ayurveda practitioners try to treat the root causes of problems such as an improper diet, stress or a sedentary lifestyle.

    If a special diet is recommended, it may include spices and herbs. Cardamom is often used to treat indigestion, cumin seeds serve as anti-inflammatories, and sarsaparilla roots are favored to reverse gout and skin disorders. Rarer spices and herbs may also be recommended, which you should be able to find at your next stop—a market in the Hampankatta city center.

    The market is a wonderful place to experience the hustle and bustle of daily life and people-watch while enjoying the cacophony of sounds and unusual sights. While browsing the stands, you will find everything from fine silk products to aromatic sandalwood oil.

    Before returning to the pier, you will also have time to visit Gokarnath Temple. Built in 1912 for the suppressed Billava community, the temple features a golden tower decorated with murals depicting Hindu legends.

    Please note: Due to the areas involved this tour is not available to wheelchair guests. Temple visits require shoes to be removed before entering. This tour must be purchased no later than 3 days prior to the operating date.

  • Highlights of Mangalore

While appearing deceptively rural, Mangalore is actually a busy and thriving maritime city and the world's principal cashew-nut port. A city of vibrant contrasts, you will feel the peaceful tranquility of its lush green environment while viewing the abundant coconut plantations native to the area, while also navigating past narrow winding streets that are home to quaint gabled houses, temples and churches.

The temple is visited daily by those wishing to seek the blessing of the Lord Gokarnath.

    Proceeding to the amazing St. Aloysius Chapel, you'll see why this amazing chapel is considered a must-see for anyone visiting Mangalore. Often compared to the Sistine Chapel in Rome, the unique beauty of the chapel lies in the remarkable series of intricate paintings that cover virtually every square inch of the interior ceiling and walls. Created over a period of two years by Brother Antonio Moscheni, an Italian artist, the Chapel with its magnificent art work is truly one of the city's hidden gems.

    Your final tour stop before returning to the pier will be at the private home of a typical Mangalorean family. Here, you can enjoy learning about local life and customs while being treated to some light refreshment.
