Uttara Kannada or Uttar Kannad is one of the districts in the State of Karnataka, India. This district is located towards the north of this state. In Hindi and many other local languages, the word “Uttar” means North. The British were not good at pronouncing many of the local words, and therefore, Uttar Kannad became North Canara or North Kanara for them.
