My city - Bangalore By Tara

Naming of Bangalore:

Naming of Bangalore There are numerous versions related to the naming of the city as 'Bangalore'. As per the information available in the Gazetteer of India, the term 'Bangalore' is an anglicized version of "Bengalooru," a Kannad term. The word Bengalooru was in turn derived from the phrase 'bende kaalu ooru', meaning 'the town of boiled beans'. There is story behind naming the city as the 'town of boiled beans'. 

Naming of Bangalore:

Naming of Bangalore It is said that King Ballala of the Hoysala dynasty once got lost in the jungle and was very tired and hungry. In the jungle, he came across a poor and old woman, who offered him some boiled beans. As an expression of his gratitude towards the woman, the King named the place as 'bende kaalu ooru’

Founder of Bangalore :

Founder of Bangalore Bangalore is the largest city and capital of the Indian state, Karnataka. Bangalore or Bengaluru ,as it is known today ,was founded by Kempe Gowda, who built a mud fort at the site in 1537. It has developed over the years into a industrial and technological hub in India.

Founder of Bangalore :

Founder of Bangalore Modern Bengaluru was founded by Kempe Gowda I (1510–1570) who was a feudal lord under the Vijayanagara Kings. Kempe Gowda also referred to the new town as his "gandu bhoomi" or "Land of Heroes“. Within Bangalore, the town was divided into petes or markets. The town had two main streets:  Chickkapete Street ran east-west and Doddapete Street ran north-south. Their intersection formed Doddapete square — the heart of then Bangalore

Early history:

Early history Reign of the Sultans, Marathas and British In the year 1638, the Vijayanagara Empire fell to the Sultan of Bijapur, Mohammed Adil Shah. For the next sixty years, the city was under the rule of the Sultans. Thereafter, Mughals took over the city. However, their rule did not last too long and in 1687, they sold the kingdom to King Chikkadevaraja Wodeyar of Mysore. He got another fort built in Bangalore, to the south of the one built by Kempe Gowda. Hyder Ali received Bangalore in the form of jagir in 1759, from Krishna Raja Wodeyar II. He converted the city into an army town. 

Early history:

Early history In the year 1799, when Tipu Sultan died, the British returned the kingdom back to Krishna Raja Wodeyar III. However, the British again took over the kingdom in 1831, citing misrule by Krishna raja Wodeyar III as the reason. It was under the British rule that Bangalore started developing into a modern city, with all the contemporary facilities like railways, telegraphs, post and telegraph, etc. The city was again given back to the Wodeyars in 1881. However, since the British Commissioners were based in Bangalore, its development into a contemporary city continued unabated. 


THE MIDDLE YEARS The salubrious climate of Bengaluru attracted the ruling class and led to the establishment of the famous Military Cantonment, a city-state close to the old town of Bengaluru. The area became not only a military base for the British but also a settlement for a large number of Europeans, Anglo-Indians and missionaries.


THE MIDDLE YEARS In 1906, Bengaluru became the first city in Asia to have electricity, supplied by the hydroelectric plant situated in Shivanasamudra Bangalore's reputation as the Garden City of India began in 1927 with the Silver Jubilee celebrations of the rule of Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV. Several projects such as the construction of parks, public buildings and hospitals were instituted to improve the city.  Bangalore therefore served traditionally as a retreat for people from the surrounding South Indian regions. Even today, the city administration manages to maintain several parks. Cubbon Park and Lal Bagh are two such examples.
