Bangalore’s antecedents can be traced to a feudal lord called Kempe Gowda who founded the city in 1537. He christened the area which is today known as Old Bangalore, ‘Gandu Bhoomi’ or land of heroes after an incident wherein his dog was attacked by a rabbit. Gowda established a fortification on the land with the help of the local king and Bangalore continued to be ruled for the next three hundred years by a succession of local rulers until 1831 when it was annexed by the British colonists. The British took a fancy to Bangalore as it was blessed with a year round pleasant climate that reminded them of ‘home’ and they soon established their administrative capital in the city. They then went about modernizing the city according to their needs and built railway lines, communication systems along with imposing buildings and many verdant parks.
