Karnataka has a glorious history. Located in the southern part of India, this state is ruled by several dynasties which shape its history. At various points in history, many rulers attacked it. Due to the influence of various rulers and dynasties, Karnataka became enriched with its distinctive culture and values.
In ancient times, Karnataka was known as Karunadu, which means elevated land or high plateau. The history of Karnataka can be seen back in prehistoric days.
History of Karnataka
Aluru Venkata Rao was the first person who had dreamed of uniting the state with the Karnataka Ekkarnana movement in 1905. In 1950,
India became a republic and different provinces were formed on the basis of language spoken in the particular area of the country and it gave birth to the Mysore state, including various places of South India, which was first ruled by the kings Was there.
On 1 November 1956, the Mysore State, which included most of the territory of the former princely state of Mysore, was merged with Kannada-speaking areas of Bombay and Madras Presidency, as well as the Principal of Hyderabad,
an integrated Kannada-speaking Sub-national unit of Northern Karnataka, Malanad (Canara) and Old Mysore were thus three areas of newly formed Mysore State.
The newly integrated state initially upheld the name “Mysore”, which was from the former princely state that formed the core of the new entity.
But the people of Northern Karnataka did not favor the retention of Mysore, because it was closely related to the former principality and southern regions of the new state. In respect to this argument, the name of the state was changed to “Karnataka” on 1 November 1973.
Devraj Arasu was the Chief Minister of the state during this historic decision. Among others who gave credit for the integration of Karnataka Lititors such as Shivram Kanth, Kuvempu, Masti Venkatesa Ayangar, AN Krishna Krishna Rao and BM Srikanti are included.
In short, the history of Karnataka
The pre-historic culture of Karnataka was very different from the northern part of India. During prehistoric times, the hand-ax culture was practiced in Karnataka. This culture was like the pre-memorable culture of Africa.
Indeed, even before 1200 BC, the press was known for the occupants of Karnataka. It was long before that time the inhabitants of North India had come to know about the use of iron.
The early history of Karnataka
The early rulers of Karnataka were from the northern parts of the country. During the 4th and 3rd centuries, the BCE parts of Karnataka were under the rule of Maurya and Nanda empire of northern India.
After the fall of the Maurya Empire, Satavahana dynasty came to power in Karnataka around 3 BCE. They ruled over the wider areas of northern Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Maharashtra.
Prakrit was his administrative language. Both Kannada and Telugu were found and developed during their rule. Satavahana dynasty ruled Karnataka for almost 300 years.
As a result of the weakening of the Satavahana dynasty, Pallavas of Karnataka became a political power in Karnataka for a short time. Pallavas were dominated by the indigenous dynasties, the Kadambus of Banavasi and the Ganges of Kolar.
Kadamba dynasty and climbing of the Western Ganges Dynasty became an independent political unit at the starting point of Karnataka.

The first ruler who used the Kannada language at the administrative level was Kadambus. They also mined gold coins and contributed to the architectural heritage of Karnataka.
Chalukya had left his empire behind before Calcutta ruled Karnataka for more than 200 years. But some small branches of the Kadamba Dynasty ruled on the Hanagal, Goa and some other areas till the 14th century.
Western Ganga Dynasty (325 AD-99 9 AD)
The Ganga Dynasty initially ruled from Kolar and later went to its capital Talakad. To distinguish this dynasty from the Eastern Ganga Dynasty, it is known as Western Ganges that in the later centuries, Kalinga (currently Odisha) was dominated.
His rule spreads in parts of southern Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Tamilnadu. He laid a strong foundation for the development of Kannada literature.
The Ganga has constructed many monuments. Gometheshwara statue in Shravanabelagola, in the construction of approximately 983 AD, is the world’s highest monolith statue and it is considered the most famous Ganga architecture.
