Surrounded by many historic and pre-historic sites, the history in Chittoor traces way back to the ancient era. Archaeologists have discovered many proofs that conclude that civilisation existed in this area even in the Stone Age. They have found many Palaeolithic tools from the early stone age near Tirupathi, Sitarampeta, Ellampalle, Mekalavandlapealle, Piler, etc. Some Mesolithic tools were also discovered at Chinthaparthi, Moratavandlapalle, Aruvandlapalle, Tirupathi, etc. Archaeologists and historians also found some Neolithic and ancient tools near Bangarupalem. \nThe discovery of burials at Irulabanda, Bapanatham, Voyalpadu, Sodum, Velkuru, Nyakaneri, Basinikonda, etc. prove the existence of megolithic culture in this area. The political history of Chittoor traces back to the 4th century BC, to the Mauryas. Until 1911, the district of Chittoor, was not a homogeneous administrative unit. Numerous principal dynasties during different eras namely the Mauryas, Pallavals, Rashtrakutas, Cholas, Mughals, Marathas, Tipu of Mysore and the British, along with minor dynasties such as the Renande Cholas, Nolambas, Yadavas, Telgu Cholas, etc. ruled over this district.
