Situated in coastal Karnataka, 12 kms away from Udupi is a beautiful beach town known as the Kaup or the Kapu. Climb the lighthouse anytime between 4pm to 6pm to witness a marvellous scenic view of the ocean on one side and the town on the other. This remains the major attraction for tourists as it is one of the oldest light houses built in the beginning of the 20th century and stands nearly 100 feet above the base. Apart from the lighthouse, Goddess Mariamma devotees will be satisfied as there are three temples dedicated to the goddess. One can also visit the famous Jain fort but in ruins.
