All are around Mangalore ranging from 50-100km radium. Few can be clubbed on the same day. You might save sometime if you drive down from your original destination if its Bangalore, as you can cover Subramanya and Dharmasthala on your way.

Park yourself at Mangalore and leave everyday morning and cover 2 places and day and come back to Mangalore by night, there's a lot of food options in Mangalore.

Cabs will charge from Rs7 a km(Indica non a/c) to Rs12(Innova/Xylo) a km based on the kind of vehicle you need. If you are a larger group use a Innova or Xylo. If you want specific person contacts, can get some contact numbers too.

Mangalore hotels are reasonably priced. To name a few :

Prestige at Balmatta @Rs1300/ per night for 2 adults and 2 kids including breakfast
Taj Manjarun- State Bank/Hampankatta @Rs2000 per night for 2 adults and 2 kids including breakfast
Mangalore International, Poonja International - K.S. Rao Road@Rs1500 per night for 2 adults and 2 kids including breakfast

"MANGALORE–THE CITY NAME"

The name ‘Mangalore’ is the anglicised version of ‘Mangaluru’, the name for the city in the local Kannada language. The Malayalam language variant of the same is ‘Mangalapuram’. One of the earliest references to this name is made by Pandya King Chettian, who called the city as ‘Managalapuram’ in 715 AD. Yet another historical reference is by the 11th century Arabian traveler Ibn Batuta, whose chronicles refer to Mangalore as ‘Manjarur’. This variation in spelling is attributed to the pronunciation gap between and Arabic and the local language. It is believed that the city derived its name from the temple of Goddess Mangaladevi. ‘Mangaluru’ literally means ‘the city of Mangala’. According to legend Matsyendranatha, one of the important propounders of the Nath cult had arrived at Mangalore with the princess of Kerala, Premaladevi. He named her Mangaladevi.
