Bangalore (officially Bengaluru), is the capital of the Indian state of Karnataka.
Located on the Deccan Plateau in the south-eastern part of Karnataka,
Bangalore is India's third most populous city and fifth-most populous urban agglomeration.
It is home to numerous public sectors such as heavy industries, software companies,
aerospace, telecommunications, machine tools, heavy equipment, and defence establishments.
Bangalore is known as the Silicon Valley of India owing to its pre-eminent position
as the leading contributor to India's IT industry.
Bangalore has developed into one of India's major economic hubs and was
mentioned by CNN as one of the "best places to do business in the wired world".
Though historically attested at least since 900 CE, Kempe Gowda I,
is widely regarded as the founder of modern Bangalore,
he built a mud fort and established it as a province of the Vijayanagara Empire.
During the British Raj, it became a centre for colonial rule in South India.
The establishment of the Bangalore Cantonment brought in large numbers of migrants
from other parts of the country.
Since independence in 1947, Bangalore grew to become the capital of Karnataka state.
Today, as a large and growing metropolitan in the developing world,
Bangalore is home to some of the most well-recognized colleges and research institutions
in India, and has the second-highest literacy rate in the nation.
