Belagavi ( earlier known as “Venugrama” or the “Bamboo Village”) is one of the oldest, strong, prominent, and well-cultured historical places nestling high in the Western Ghats. The old town area with cotton and silk weavers stands gloriously beside the modern, bustling, tree-lined British Cantonment. Step out of the forts and you have a wide choice of temples and churches to visit. Belagavi has an enviable heritage and offers much to be discovered. It lies in the zone of cultural transition between Karnataka, Maharashtra, and Goa with known antiquity clearly traceable up to the 2nd Century A.D. Due to its proximity with the states of Maharashtra and Goa, Belagavi has acquired the cultural flavour of these states and blended it with the local Kannada culture to create a rich heritage, which is unique in its manifestation. It is also known as Malenadu or Rain Country and the vegetation here is verdant green throughout the year. Well, centuries have passed and today it is an entirely different story. Belagavi has now become one of the important and considered districts in the state of Karnataka. Belagavi is now marching with a tag of a fast-growing, redeveloping district with a population of 47,79,661 as per the 2011 Census. Belagavi is exactly at the center between Mumbai and Bangalore.
