Historical Places

The majority of the early accounts of Coorg(Kodagu) are fundamentally eminent and the genuine record of history in Coorg is available only following the ninth century. On the word of inscriptions, Coorg was under the rule of many dynasties of South India such as Changalvas, Cholas, Gangas, Hoysalas, Kadambas and Pandyas.

 According to the Puranas, Kodava is the redifned name of Krodhadesa, meaning ‘Land of Anger’, said to have been inhabited by the Kodava tribe. While for some, it is believed to hve been named after the River Cauveri, where ‘kod’ means ‘give’ and ‘ava’ means ‘mother’ – which means Cauvery is the ‘mother to the people’. It is said that the history of Coorg dates back to as early as 888 AD.
