History of Bangalore:
According to local people, the word "Bangalore" is derived from ‘Bendakalooru’ or the town of boiled beans. This name was given by Veera Ballala, a king of the Vijayanagar dynasty. The king lost his way in the forest and as he travelled slowly through the tall trees and thick brush he spotted a little hut. He knocked hopefully and the door was opened by an old woman, who welcomed the Prince into her home and offered him some ‘Bendakalu’, boiled beans which he ate hungrily. He asked her the name of the place, which the gracious lady misunderstood and said, ‘Bendakalu’, which means the boiled beans. The prince later decided to name the place which gave him refreshment as ‘Benda kala uru’, and thus, Bangalore got its name. Bangalore was also ruled by the several Maharajas of Mysore.
