Well known for the Manipal university, this town is home to multiple educational institutions founded by Dr T M A Pai. It is located in the Malabar coast region with the Arabian Sea at a touching distance of 8km. Apart from the Manipal University campus, this place also houses the international headquarters of Syndicate bank and a regional IT hub.
Manipal was a sleepy coastal town that was not very famous before 1950. It was once a part of the Shivalli village panchayat. However, all that changed when the town was selected by Dr Tonse Madhava Anantha Pai as the location to set up an institution for imparting medical education. With the establishment of India's first private medical college, Kasturba Medical College, in Manipal in the year 1953 this sleepy town started getting attention and within a few years, it became one of the most well-known places in Karnataka.

Manipal is now known as a student's city as it is an education hub and provides everything a student might need. With Hill Stations and Beaches really nearby, it ups the ante for people to visit or just come to study. Agumbe Hill station is just an hour and a half away, most of the beaches are just 30 minutes away from the city.
