Chikmagalur literally means 'The Town of the Younger Daughter'. Coffee was introduced into India through the Chikmagalur district when the first coffee crop was grown in the Bababudangiri range during 1670 AD. It is also known as the ‘land of coffee’. Mullayanagiri, which is the highest peak in Karnataka, is located in Chikamagalur.
