Origin of the name “Karnataka”
How many of you really know the complete history as to how Karnataka got its name? And its historical references? For those who are not originally from this city or do not know much about Karnataka history, I am sure this would be a big blank! Like me. :-)
And thanks to DH, I have been filling myself with as much that they are publishing on Karnataka history. And today they published info on the origin of the name “Karnataka”. Give it a read even if you know everything.
The same article also talks about the origin of Bengaluru, Mysuru (Mahishuru) and Kodagu.
