Karnataka’s history dates back to Palaeolithic era and historians have excavated some axes and cleavers made of granite from different sites. The state has been ruled by different dynasties like the Mauryas, Tipu Sultan, Wadiyar’s etc. and each one has left a distinct mark on the state. We have created a small slice of the history and cultural experience for you which will take you back in time.
