Salt making

Apr 18, 2006 | My friend +Srinivas Kunku and I were driving from Ankola towards Gokarna in India, and on the way we passed through the village of Sanikatta where people were busy working the salt making fields.


Sanikatta is a twin village (combined with Talgeri) in Kumta taluk of Uttara Kannada district, Karnataka, India. This place is about a few square kilometres in extent. It is in the neighborhood of Gokarna, Devarbhavi, Torke and Tadadi port. The place Sanikatta is the oldest salt-manufacturing village in the Karnataka State. Beginning from 1720, Sanikatta has continued manufacturing salt for nearly 300 years. [Source: Wikipedia]
