Mangalore: Case of positive economy turning Gold consumption
Mangalore is popular for its mesmerizing temples and churches. Mangalore got its name from the 9th century Mangaladevi temple. Mangalore, Karnataka’s beautiful port-city is also home to the 17th century St Aloysius Church. But, it’s not just fish, food and culture that Mangalore is popular for. In fact, the old visuals of tile-roofed bungalows, tall coconut groves, thatched huts, and a long coast may be insufficient to define the spirit of Mangalore. Hence, two nicknames for Mangalore – The Gateway of Karnataka and The Ice Cream Capital of India.
When it comes to culture, a rich amalgamation of cultures has resulted in higher festive demand. This along with perennial tourist flow, income from fishing and port-operations, better jobs, spurt in per capita income, and comparatively higher commercial activities have made Gold popular in Mangalore.
