Notably, the traditional theatre art of Yakshagana, indigenous to coastal Karnataka, contributes to the cultural landscape of Bangalore.

The city was founded in the 16th century by Kempe Gowda, a chieftain under the Vijayanagara Empire. Over the years, Bangalore witnessed the rule of various dynasties, including the Mughals and the Marathas, before coming under British control in the 18th century.

During the British colonial era, Bangalore emerged as a center for educational and technological advancements. The establishment of institutions like the Indian Institute of Science and the formation of the "Silicon Valley of India" in the later years cemented Bangalore's reputation as a hub for innovation and modernity.

Post-independence, Bangalore continued to grow and evolve, becoming a major IT and technology hub, attracting talent from around the world. The city's history, marked by its transition from a tranquil town to a bustling metropolis, showcases its resilience and adaptability.
