Karnataka
The name Karnataka is derived from ‘Karunadu’, literally, lofty land as it is situated on the western edge of the Deccan plateau and opens out on the Arabian Sea. Karnataka has seen many great empires like the Maurya Empire in 4th century B.C. Other great dynasties have been the Satavahanas, the Kadambas, the Chulakyas, the Yadavas and the Hoysalas, and the great Vijayanagar empire in the 14th century. In 1399 A.D. Yaduraya, the ruler of Mysore founded the Wodeyar dynasty. Raja Wodeyar (1578-1612) enlarged the principality into a mighty kingdom but were overthrown by Hyder Ali, the intrepid Muslim general of Mysore. With the defeat of Tippu Sultan, the son of Hyder Ali, by the British, the Wodeyars were restored to power as a feudatory of the British. The formation of the present state represented the fulfillment of the age-old aspiration of Kannada-speaking people to come together in a single state. Formerly known as Mysore, the name was changed to Karnataka on 1st November 1973.
