History of Bangalore

Legends say that this city is named after an old woman, who lived in this area and offered a humble meal of boiled beans to King Ballala, a Hoysala ruler. The king was so pleased with her hospitality that he named the entire city as bele-benda-kalu-ooru, which in the local language of Kannada literally means, ‘the place of boiled beans’. The historical evidence of the name "Bengalooru" can be found in a 9th century inscription found in a temple in the village of Begur. Today the name has been shortened and anglicised after the British influence and has come to be called Bangalore.

The source of the present-day city of Bangalore can be traced to the early 16th century, when Kempegowda, a local chief, built a small mud fort here. Bangalore gained prominence in the 18th century, when it became an important fort city, under Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan of Mysore. This area was witness to the struggle between Tipu Sultan and the British. The British defeated Tipu Sultan and took over Bangalore city. In 1831, the British made it the regional administrative city and established a big cantonment here.
