Karwar is the place where the legendary writer Late. Sri Rabindranath Tagore first pened his poems. He was greatly impressed by the beauty of Karwar, that he quoted Karwar to be the Kashmir of Karnataka..
Karwar is the administrative headquarters of Uttara Kannada district in Karnataka, India. It is a coastal town situated on the banks of the Kali river which is on the west coast of the Indian subcontinent. The town lies about 12 kilometres south of the Karnataka-Goa border and 519 km north-west of Bangalore The sea beach of Karwar is certainly a fit place in which to realize that the beauty of Nature is not a mirage of the imagination, but reflects the joy of the Infinite and thus draws us to lose ourselves in it. Where the universe is expressing itself in the magic of its laws it may not be strange if we miss its infinitude; but where the heart gets into immediate touch with immensity in the beauty of the meanest of things, is any room left for argument?"
