The wonderful city of Bangalore has a history that narrates its glorious past. The name Bangalore was coined from the “Bendha Kaalu”, which means boiled beans in the local language Kannada. According to the historical fact, King Veera Ballala of the Vijayanagara kingdom once was lost in the woods while looking for a shelter he came across a lonely little cottage in the midst of the forest. There was an old lady who was living in the cottage. See the condition of the tattered clothes and the hugry face the old lady offered the starving king only boiled beans which she called “Bendha Kaalu”. Later the place was named “Bendha kaaLu ooru” (ooru in Kannada means a city). In due course “Bendhakaalooru” became BengaLooru in Kannada and Bangalore in English.
