Bagalakote or Bagalkot is a town in the Indian state of Karnataka. Bagalakote is the district headquarters of the Bagalkote district. It is one of the major towns in North Karnataka.HistoryAccording to stone inscriptions in the surrounding area, the town's name was formerly Bagadige. According to legend, the town was given to the Bhajantries (musicians) by Ravana, the king of Lanka who ruled this area. One of the Bijapur kings is said to have presented the town to his daughter as bangle money (a tradition in which the daughter is given money to buy bangles, sarees, gold ornaments from her parents after the marriage). The name might be because of the entrance gate called Shiroor Agasi at east end with huge <u>doors which are called Bagilu in Kannada'. There was a <u>fort on the Northwest side of the old town between the Killa and Ghataprabha rivers, in Kannada Kote' Consequently, the place acquired the name Bagadikote or Bagilukote which later became. Bagalakote remained under successive dominions of Vijayanagar emperors, Peshwas, Kingdom of Mysore, Maratha rulers, and finally the British in 1818. In 1865, it was established as a municipality and civic amenities were provided to the residents of Bagalakote. The place was a noted centre of freedom movement and the Unification movement. Freedom fighter Sindhoora Laxmana lived in Kadalimatti and Bilagi mountain ranges.
