Abstract:In the historical studies the diaries of some prominent personalities turn into important source material. The paper discusses these diaries, which throw light on the history of coastal Karnataka. Diary of Duarte Menezeus gives details about the trade, socio-economic conditions, forts, and churches of coastal Karnataka under the Portuguese. Ansare`s diary is as good as official document gives information on Gangolli and useful to know the history of Christianity in this area. Alorna's diary is full of commands, but useful to understand the economic history of the coastal Karnataka of the 18th century. The Public Department Diary, though favorable to the English provides lot of information on the trade and commerce of the times.
