With a little bit of imagination, this place could have been done up beautifully and the surroundings could have been improved to create a world class tourist spot. However, as is the case with most historical places whose upkeep is entrusted with governmental organisations, the Sultan Battery in Mangalore is a sad picture of neglect.

Amazing place for passing time with friends. One should visit this place in the evening. The boat ride to Tannirbavi beach is really good.

The fort is not so antique but first time visitors it is good. There is a river like back water of sea wherein you can have a site seeing trip for 15 minutes. Good view. Also many fishing boats are camped for repair during monsoon.

This is located on the outskirts of the mangalore city. One of the best part about this beach is the ferry ride. Once you reach here either by your own vehicle or an auto you have to purchase a ferry ticket which takes you from one shore to another. This is itself creates that magical feeling of going to a...

I would recommend not to plan a visit to this place unless you go for taking boat yo tannivir beach. This place has old watch tower structure on the bank of river.

This place is away from the city and would need a vehicle to visit. However it is worth crossing the river using a ferry and visit Tannirbavi beach and take some best photographs.
