History of Karnataka

Karnataka has a glorious history. Located in the southern part of India, this state is ruled by several dynasties which shape its history. At various points in history, many rulers attacked it. Due to the influence of various rulers and dynasties, Karnataka became enriched with its distinctive culture and values.

In ancient times, Karnataka was known as Karunadu, which means elevated land or high plateau. The history of Karnataka can be seen back in prehistoric days.

Pre-historic culture of Karnataka was very different from the northern part of India. During pre-historic times, hand-ax culture was practiced in Karnataka. This culture was similar to the pre-historic culture of Africa. Even before 1200 BC, iron was known for the residents of Karnataka. It was long before that time the inhabitants of North India had come to know about the use of iron.

The early rulers of Karnataka were from the northern parts of the country. During the 4th and 3rd centuries, the BCE parts of Karnataka were under the rule of Maurya and Nanda Empire of northern India. After the fall of the Maurya Empire, the Satavahana dynasty came to power in Karnataka about 3 BC. They ruled over the wider areas of northern Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra. Prakrit was his administrative language. Both Kannada and Telugu were found and developed during their rule. Satavahana dynasty ruled Karnataka for almost 300 years.

As a result of the weakening of the Satavahana dynasty, Pallavas of Karnataka became a political power in Karnataka for a short time. Pallavas were dominated by the indigenous dynasties, the Kadamba of Banavasi and the Gangas of Kolar. Kadamba dynasty and climbing of the Western Gangas Dynasty became an independent political unit at the starting point of Karnataka.
