The university is also considering the suggestion of Dr Veerendra Heggade, Dharmadhikari of Shri Kshetra Dharmasthala, to set up a “Tulu village” model on the Konaje university campus in Mangaluru taluk. (Tulu is an important spoken language of the Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts along the Karnataka coast).

“In addition to this, Heggade has promised to provide the ancient manuscripts from the area, which are kept at the Dharmasthala Museum, for research and study purposes for students at Mangaluru University,” he said. he adds.
