History of mangalore

The Roman historian, Pliny, had mentioned the existence of Mangaluru town during the first century CE. In the third century BCE, the town was part of the Mauryan empire, which was ruled by Asoka the great. From the third century CE to the sixth century CE, the region was ruled by the Kadamba dynasty. Between seventh and fourteenth century A.D. the Alupas, who were the native feudatory rulers, ruled over the region. \n\nThe region was ruled by Vijayanagara rulers during the year 1345 to 1550. Hyder Ali, the ruler of Mysore, conquered Mangalore in 1763, and was under his dominion until 1767. After the defeat of Tipu Sultan, Hyder Ali’s son, the city’s administration was passed over to the British East India Company, which was later transferred to the British Empire, which remained with them till India’s independence. After India’s independence, Mangalore was incorporated into the newly created state of Mysore, which is present day Karnataka.
