Eco tourism is the heartbeat of Karnataka. Pulsating with lifetime experiences, where you can inhale the silence of the moment that brings peace to your soul - twinkling rivers, sweeping landscapes, majestic wildlife, ivory beaches and a rich diversity of flora and fauna. Karnataka is a home to some of the World Heritage sites. Its geography has created some of the awesome eco-tourism places like Madikeri, Agumbe, Coorg, Shimoga and many more. Some of the architectural splendours of the bygone era like the ruins of the Vijayanagar Empire at Hampi and the monuments of Pattadakal are on the list of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites while the Hoysala temples at Belur and Halebidu are in the list of proposed UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The cave temple at Badami and rock-cut temples of Aihole also top the list of must-visits. The Gol Gumbaz at Bijapur has the second largest pre-modern dome in the world after the Byzantine Hagia Sophia.
The marvellous Mysore Palace, Ibrahim Roza at Bijapur, the Daria Daulata Bagh at Srirangapatanam, the Khwaja Bandenawaz Darga at Gulbarga are some of the remarkable historical splendours of Karnataka.

Eco-Tourism Development Board
Eco-tourism in Karnataka is expected to receive a big boost with the state cabinet on 15 August, 2013 approving the proposal to set up Eco-Tourism Development Board.
The forest minister will be the boards chairman. Announcing the decision, higher education minister VS Acharya said the initiative would help the government immensely in protecting the wildlife, creating awareness about it, encouraging eco-tourism, forest safaris and also prevent damage to eco-system in the name of tourism.
Madhya Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh have already set up such boards to boost eco-tourism. Acharya said the board would bring private investments to the state and avail consultancy.
Tourist spots like Bandipur National Park, eco garden gulbarga would see huge improvement in tapping the tourism potential, he added.
