Although most know it for its giant capital, Karnataka encompasses many different land features, from sandy beaches in the coastal east to the wild mountains and thriving farmlands deep in the interior. Home to nearly 9 million people, the city of Bangalore makes a great starting point of a Karnataka tour, packed with temples, churches, shopping malls, and thousands of fast food eateries and restaurants. If you prefer to see the less hectic side of Karnataka, head to Hampi, where you can discover the remains of the once-powerful Vijayanagara Empire scattered across a sprawling World Heritage Site.

In the 15th and 16th centuries, the Vijayanagar kings patronised Chennakesava of Belur as their family deity. It was also ruled by Adilshahis of Bijapur and Mughal Empire after decline of the Vijayanagar. In the 17th and 18th centuries, Hassan became a land of contention between the Keladi Nayakas of Shimoga and the Mysore Kingdom. It finally merged as an independent Mysore kingdom.AncientAround 300 BCE Hassan was part of the Mauryan empire. Sage Bhadrabahu arrived from north India in the 3rd century BCE along with many ascetics marking the arrival of Jainism into Karnataka.
