History of Hassan

The history of Hassan involves two of the greatest dynasties that ruled Karnataka, Western Ganga Dynasty of Talkad (350 - 999 CE.) and the Hoysala Empire (1000 - 1334 CE). Hassan was the seat of power for the Hoysala Empire that ruled large parts of south India in the 11th to the 13th century. The Hoysala rulers had built a huge number of temples during their reign and as many as fifty of these amazing sculptures and architectural structures survive today and are being looked after by the Archeology Survey of India. 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.
