If you visit Karnataka, dont miss the Cauvery arts and crafts emporium.
Excerpt from the official website:
Karnataka State Handicrafts Development Corporation Limited, (A Government of Karnataka Undertaking) was established in the year 1964 under Companies Act 1956.
objective of the corporation is to preserve, develop and promote handicrafts. Government of India and Government of Karnataka are the share holders in the organization.
Karnataka State is richly endowed with widely practiced, accepted and acclaimed crafts since time immemorial. The major crafts are sandalwood carvings, rosewood inlay, channapatna lacquer ware & toys, Mysore traditional paintings, bidri ware, kinhal toys, Navalgund durries, stone carvings, other wood carvings, traditional jewellery, mirror and embroidery, banana fiber, terracotta, bronze icons, Pile carpets and many more
Karnataka State Handicrafts Development Corporation Limited is the pioneer in establishing 13 craft complexes across Karnataka state wherever there is concentration of artisans for various crafts. Common facility centers are also built at these craft complexes for the benefit of artisans.
4544 artisans are registered with the corporation and over 50,000 artisans are indirectly depending upon the corporation for preserving, developing and promoting their craftsmanship. The corporation has provided 1222 living cum work sheds to the eligible and deserving artisans.
I have attached pictures of the Cauvery Emporium in M.G.Road,Bengaluru. It is situated at the M.G.Road-Brigade Road Junction. It is just few minutes away from the M.G. Road Metro station.
Official website-click here
Also at Jayanagara(Bengaluru),Mysuru,New Delhi,Secunderabad,Mangaluru and Hubballi.
So,what are you waiting for?! Pick out an indigenous and authentic product of Karnataka as your souvenir. Worth the cost you shell out.

This tip is for visitors to some of Bengaluru's famous landmarks Vidhana Soudha, Vikasa Soudha and Cubbon Park. And also non-veg food loving Bengalureans.
Many state govts. offer highly subsidised meal at govt. canteens. But KA govt. doesn't do that but has a Govt. canteen run by the Fisheries department which offers food at a cheaper rate than outside. It's called Mathsya Darshini. It's located at Cubbon Park.
are many items some of which are available seasonally or on certain days of the week only. But the most popular and available daily is the Fish Meals. It consists of a bowl of rice, a big ragi ball, rasam, a cup of buttermilk and 1 big full Fish or 2 good sized pieces.
Any of these you can take extra too (see menu). The ragi ball is pretty big and if the need be you can ask for extra gravy too (free).
Timing: 12 PM-8PM, all days. But avoid 1 PM-2:00 PM on weekdays as it is the time when Govt. employees from all the surrounding Govt. offices converge here. The queue to buy the token and to take meals is very long. In the evening ragi ball won't be available, I was told.
The place is spacious with blue sheet covering to give a feel of ocean :) Filter water is available. Lots of seating is there, even table to stand and eat. There is a small fish tank with some ornamental fishes in it; you can sit next to it and admire and eat.
Govt. run aqua pet shoppe is there in the front to buy ornamental fishes. There is a Govt. fish shop too with variety of fishes, prawns, crabs...
After seeing Vidhana Soudha, in the opposite is a road that leads to Cubbon Park, if you walk into it and ask for "Govt. Fish Hotel", people will direct you. Or you can walk towards K.R. Circle from Vidhana Soudha and at the circle take left into Cubbon Park, you will get this hotel.
Both ways just few hundred meters from Vidhana Soudha and also Metro station (you can take metro from SBC (Majestic) to Vidhana Soudha).
After the meal, if you stroll into Cubbon Park, to the immediate left you will find a Govt. Horticulture Dept. Shop on the footpath (under a canopy) selling juices and dry fruits. Grape Juice is best, also there is Mango juice. Both priced at Rs.15 (He may say 20 but you insist that you know the price is 15).
Ask for cold one, chilled among blocks of ice (no extra cost). If you take the bottle home to ferment and drink, then its 20 rs.

I have bought Blue Crabs in that govt shop. The cleaning is good. 1st time seeing govt workers working efficiently.
Food - I always buy fish gravy in boxes, because eating there - the queue is long and so many govt. employees keep coming constantly.

Tip is for: People coming to Bengaluru for some exam/interview etc... and stay in lodges in Majestic area around SBC. Also for Bengalureans who love food and those catching afternoon trains and who would love to have some good non-veg food in the train.
S.G.S Non-veg hotel serves one of the best chicken palavs and is very famous too. The palav is spicy with good sized pieces of chicken served with half a boiled egg, a slice of lemon and some fresh cut onions and cucumber. If you eat there, they serve
it in a
Donne (bowl made from dried leaves). Or you can ask for parcel, which is given in a plastic box at no extra charge. The place is small and you will have to eat standing like in a fast food restaurant.
The timings and cost are in pics. It's better to buy earlier than 1 pm as sometimes it gets over by then (limited preparation being one of the USP). In the evenings they serve kabab and kshatriya kabab (a deep fried chicken item marinated in spices).
For location here is a link click here
For those staying in lodges around Majestic - it is at a walkable distance of around 1.5 Km from the station. Ask for Sowrastrapet or just Gundu Palav hotel or Donne Biryani hotel and people will guide you.
For Bengalureans who are interested to buy this before boarding your train, leave a little early because as you may know this is old Bengaluru with narrow lanes, so getting caught in traffic jam is usual. There is place for bike parking but if you go by auto or car then you need to walk a bit.
For more info and pics - Google search - Gundu Palav, there quite a few reviews and social media pages about this hotel.
