Mysore District is an administrative district located in the southern part of the state of Karnataka, India. The district is bounded by Mandya district to the east and northeast, Chamrajanagar district to the southeast, Kerala state to the south, Kodagu district to the west, and Hassan district to the north. It features many tourist destinations, from Mysore Palace to Nagarhole National Park. This district has a prominent place in the history of Karnataka; Mysore was ruled by the Wodeyars from the year 1399 till the independence of India in the year 1947. Mysore's prominence can be gauged from the fact that the Karnataka state was known previously as Mysore state.It is the third most populous district in Karnataka (out of 30), after Bangalore and Belgaum.Origin of nameMysore district gets its name from the city of Mysore which is also the headquarters of the district.
