Mangalore town, administrative headquarters of Dakshin Kanna district, southwestern Karntaka (formerly Mysore) state, southern India, a port on the Arabian Sea. Lying on the backwaters formed by the Netrvati and Gurpur rivers, it has long been a roadstead along the Malabar Coast. Engaged in Persian Gulf trade in the 14th century, Mangalore was occupied by the Portuguese in the mid-16th century. Under the Mysore sultans (1763) it became a strategic shipbuilding base, which was ceded to the British in 1799 after numerous sieges.

The town, heavily dotted with coconut plantations, has a deceptively rural appearance. It is a busy transshipment centre; ships must anchor 3 miles (5 km) offshore because of sandbars; a deepwater port, however, has been developed for the shipment of mineral ores. Cashew nuts, coffee, and sandalwood are brought from Mysore and Coorg districts; rice, areca nuts, coir yarn (coconut fibre), fish, and cardamom arelocal products.

Mangalore derives its name from the local Hindu deity Mangaladevi. It developed as a port on the Arabian Sea remaining, to this day, a major port of India. Lying on the backwaters of the Netravati and Gurupura rivers, Mangalore is often used as a staging point for sea traffic along the Malabar Coast. The city has a tropical climate and lies on the path of the Arabian Sea branch of the South-West monsoons. Mangalore's port handles 75% of India's coffee exports and the bulk of the nation's cashew exports.
Mangalore was ruled by several major powers, including the Kadambas, Vijayanagar dynasty, Chalukyas, Rashtrakutas, Hoysalas, and the Portuguese. The city was a source of contention between the British and the Mysore rulers, Hyder Ali and Tippu Sultan. Eventually annexed by the British in 1799, Mangalore remained part of the Madras Presidency until India's independence in 1974The city was unified with the state of Mysore (now called Karnataka) in 1956.[5]
