Mangalore Junction railway station (Station code: MAJN) is a gateway to the port city of Mangalore located at Darbar Hill, Padil, Mangalore, 575007, coming under the Palakkad Division of Southern Railway. The station is a junction interconnecting Mangalore Central railway station with Kerala in the south, Maharashtra/Goa and Mangalore Sea Port in the north and Bangalore-Chennai in the east. It is the busiest railway junction in the area, as all north- and southbound trains touch Mangalore through this station.
It was formerly called Kankanadi railway station when the city railway station was simply called Mangalore railway station. Later both were renamed as Mangalore Junction and Mangalore Central respectively to avoid confusion.
This is the first station in the Southern Railway zone after the Konkan Railway zone which ends at Thokur, the previous station up north. The railways wish to develop Mangalore Junction to a world-class station on the 60 acres of land, owned by the railways, that adjoins the station.
