Mandya District

Trip Planner Asia  /  India  /  Karnataka  /  Mandya District
Mandya District is an administrative district of Karnataka, India. Mandya District is bordered on the south by Mysore District, on the west by Hassan District, on the north by Tumkur District and on the east by Ramanagar district. The district was formed in the year 1939. Mandya district is called as "SAKKARE NADU"(ಸಕ್ಕರೆ ನಾಡು ಮಂಡ್ಯ) because sugarcane is a major crop grown here, and the people here are most lovely and kind. So, they are called as"SAKKARE NADINA AKKARE JANATHE".Mandya is the main town in Mandya District. As of 2011, the district population was 1,808,680 (of which 16.03% was urban).EtymologyMandya district gets its name from the city of Mandya, which is also the headquarters of the district. Although the widely purported mythical story about the name is that the region is named after a sage called Maandavya, scholars and academicians have stated based on an ancient inscription that this region was referred to as 'Man-ta-ya' (ಮಂಟಯ), meaning a habitat preceding a civilization or roughly an ancient abode ("ಆವಾಸಸ್ತಾನ, ಅತ್ಯಂತ ಪ್ರಾಚೀನವಾದ ನಾಗರೀಕತೆಗೂ ಮುನ್ನಿನ ಜನವಸತಿ ಎಂಬ ಅರ್ಥವಿದೆ". "ಸುವರ್ಣ ಮಂಡ್ಯ" ಪುಸ್ತಕದಿಂದ - ಸಂಪಾದಕರು ದೇ. ಜವಾರೇಗೌಡ (ದೇಜಗೌ)). And gradually it became Mandya.Mandya's history is closely related to the history of the old Mysore State, which included the present district of Mandya and areas around the Cauvery Basin. Ruled successively by the kings of the Ganga dynasty and then the Cholas and the Hoysalas, the area was annexed by the rulers of Vijayanagara in 1346. After the cruel battle of 1565, when the Vijayanagara king was defeated by the combined power of the Sultans of the Deccan, the Vijayanagara Empire began to lose its power and extent. The Wodeyars of Mysore gradually grew in importance. Before long, they had established their own rule over a large part of South India which included all of old Mysore, parts of the present Tamil Nadu, and the districts of Dakshina Kannada and Dharwar, with Srirangapatna as their capital.
