- The Wodeyars of Mysore had a chequered history and began their rule as a laudatory power under Vijaynagar Empire. Having established their power in the 15th Century, the Wodeyars continued for long after the Battle of Talikota and ruled until 1757, when during the reign of Kantheerava Narasaraj Wodeyar II, Hyder Ali who in the service of the King’s army, usurped the throne and declared himself the King. Srirangapattana was the earlier capital of the Wodeyars, which later on was transferred to Mysore.
- Under the Dewanship of Stalwarts like Pumaiah, Sir Mokshagundaum Vishveshwaraya, Sir Mirja M. Ismail and others, the benevolent and cultured rule of the Wodeyars made rapid and remarkable progress in art and literature, trade and commerce, irrigation, industry, railways and communications, etc.
- Bangalore, known as the “City of Gardens”, the Kannamabadi Dam, the Brindavan Gardens, the Mysore Palace, the Annual Dasara Procession, etc. speaks highly of the cultural taste and patronage of the Wodeyars.
