Ramnagara is rightly called the Silk city. Its the center for all the cocoon trading.

Cocoon from various states like AP, Maharashtra, TN and other parts of KA comes here.  
People here were nice and explained how cocoon comes and they also cut a shell to show the moth.
 Cocoon's arranged as per the quality.
