Surrounded by water, connected to the mainland with only its south side is the peninsular town of Kundapura. To its north lie the vast backwaters of Panchagangavali river, to the east lies the Kalaghar river, and to the west lie the Kodi back waters and the Arabian Sea. It is no wonder then that Kundapore once enjoyed the position of being the chief port of the Rajas of Baindoor.
Bestowed with natural beauty and a thriving ecosystem, this town is one of the few places where bisons are found in the forests. It is also noted is for its 95,000 solar lighting installations. The people here speak a different dialect of Kannada, the Kundapur Kannada.
