History of bengaluru

A succession of South Indian dynasties, the Western Gangas, the mighty Cholas and the Hoysalas, ruled the present region of Bangalore. However, it is Kempe Gowda, the feudal lord who is called as the Founder of Bangalore. In 1537, he built a mud fort in the city and marked the four corners of the city, and with the help of King Achyuta Deva Raya, built the little towns of Cottonpet, Balepet and Chickpet, all inside the fort. Still standing today, these little regions serve as the major commercial market places in Bangalore. Later, Bangalore was passed onto the Marathas; thereafter, the Mughals and finally the British captured it. It was during the reign of the British, that Bangalore started developing into a modern city with telecommunication systems, rail connections, fine government buildings, and also, the city's famous parks and gardens were established. After independence, Bangalore continued to flourish and witnessed large-scale development. Today, the city holds a prominent place in the list of India's most developed cities and is one of the world's fastest-growing urban areas.
