Places around Manipal

Manipal, a beautiful suburb of Udupi city, is home to Manipal Academy of Higher Education. The rocky hinterland, barren till Dr T.M.A.Pai decided to start a medical college in 1953, is today an education hub without a parallel in the country. Just eight kilometres east of Arabian Sea, Manipal is connected to the outside world through the airport at Mangalore, which is about 75 kilometres away and the railway station in Udupi, about five kilometres away.

Manipal is in itself a township with students of MAHE comprising more than two-thirds of the population. Over the years, Manipal has become self-sufficient with a whole host of eateries, branded outlets, shopping complexes, multiplex, hotels including those with starred facilities, number of banks etc. All this and more made Manipal, in the words of a parent, “heaven on Earth”.  

The concrete structures notwithstanding, it’s a “green Manipal”. The flora continues to be the charm of the township because it has been been astutely handled by MAHE. That’s the reason why the campus is ranked second best in the country.
