North Karnataka
The ancient name of the town of Belgaum
Belgaum
was Venugrama, meaning Bamboo Village. It is also called as Malnad Pradesh. The most ancient place in the district is Halsi; and this, according to inscriptions on copper plates discovered in its neighborhood, was once the capital of a dynasty of nine Kadamba kings. It appears that from the middle of the 6th century to about 760 the area was held by the Chalukyas, who were succeeded by the Rashtrakutas. After the break-up of the Rashtrakuta power a portion of it survived in the Rattas (875–1250), who from 1210 onward made Venugrama their capital. Inscriptions give evidence of a long struggle between the Rattas and the Kadambas
Kadambas
of Goa, who succeeded in the latter years of the 12th century in acquiring and holding part of the district. By 1208, however, the Kadambas
Kadambas
had been overthrown by the Rattas, who in their turn succumbed to the Yadavas of Devagiri in 1250. After the overthrow of the Yadavas by the Delhi Sultanate (1320), Belgaum
Belgaum
was for a short time under the rule of the latter; but only a few years later the part south of the Ghataprabha River was subject to the Hindu rajas of Vijayanagara. In 1347 the northern part was conquered by the Bahmani Sultanate, which in 1473 took the town of Belgaum
Belgaum
and conquered the southern part also. When Aurangzeb
Aurangzeb
overthrew the Bijapura sultans in 1686, Belgaum
Belgaum
passed to the Mughals. In 1776 the country was overrun by Hyder Ali
Hyder Ali
of Mysore, but was taken by the Madhavrao Peshwa
Madhavrao Peshwa
with British assistance. In 1818 it was handed over to the British East India

Company, and was made part of the district of Dharwar. In 1836 this was divided into two parts, the northern district becoming Belgaum.[4] Yadur

Belgaum
district is a place of historical importance. Rani Chennamma of Kittur
Kittur
(1778–1829) is known for her resistance to British rule. The British had a sizable infantry post here, having realised the military importance of its geographic location. It is one of the reasons for Belgaum's sobriquet The Cradle of Infantry. Development of a rail network for the movement of resources and later troops was one of the means employed by both the British East India
India
Company and the British to exert control over India. Belgaum's railway station, the Mahatma Gandhi
