About Bengaluru

The capital city of Karnataka, Bangalore got its name from `Bengala Uru’ meaning `village of beans’, now the name is reverting to Bengalooru. The city was founded in 1531 by a chieftain, Kempe Gowda. In the year 1638, the Vijayanagara Empire fell to the Sultan of Bijapur, Mohammed Adil Shah. And for the next sixty years the city remains under the rule of the Sultans. Thereafter,  Mughals took over the city. The rule of Mughals however did not last too long and in 1687, they sold the kingdom to King Chikkadevaraja Wodeyar of Mysore. Hyder Ali received Bangalore in the form of jagir in 1759 from Krishna Raja Wodeyar II. He then converted the city into an army town.  During the British period Bengalore was a popular garrison town with a pleasant climate, parks and gardens. Post-Independence the city has witnessed large scale development and has grown in leaps and bounds. It is often described as Asia’s Silicon Valley because of its thriving information technology industry. It is India’s fifth largest and fastest growing city. The city is blessed with a benevolent climate and a burgeoning drinking, dining and shopping scene.
