Mangalore, or Mangaluru, is a port city in the state of Karnataka and home of the Tulu speakers. The city was named after the goddess Mangaladevi but is popularly known as Kudla in Tulu and Kodial in Konkani. It was a part of many major dynasties including the Maurya and Vijayanagara empires. Throughout its history, Mangalore has remained a part of the international trade with the export of spices like pepper and also betel nut. It was also visited by the great traveller, Vasco da Gama, which consequently led to the interest of the Persians, Arabs and the Portuguese. It was under the rule of Tippu Sultan, who ferociously defended the city against the British but eventually lost. Mangalore became a part of the Madras Presidency under the British rule. Today, it stands tall as the headquarters of the Dakshin Kannada district.
