In terms of area, Karnataka is the eighth biggest state in India. The capital of Karnataka is Bengaluru or Bangalore which is dubbed as the Information Technology Capital of India. Not long ago Bangalore was called the “Garden City”, now it is the 'IT City'.

In 1973, the Mysore State was renamed Karnataka. The region has been ruled by many rulers and dynasties and thus has a distinctive culture. Early history of Karnataka states that it was a part of the Maurya Empire, and then ruled by the Satvahanas, Pallavas, Kadambas and many more. Each dynasty has been immortalised in history through its architectural prowess, which can be seen in the form of monuments and temples spread over the state. After the independence of India, Karnataka state was reorganised on the basis of the 'Kannada speaking' people.

The state forms a part of the Deccan Plateau, it lies on the western edge of the plateau. It shares its borders with the Arabian Sea in the west, Maharashtra in the north, Kerala in the southwest, Goa in the northwest, Tamil Nadu to the southeast and Andhra Pradesh to the east. The economy of the state is dependent on agriculture, animal husbandry, mining, quarrying, manufacture, Information Technology, education, etc. It has the highest economic growth rate in India.

Karnataka is a mineral rich state. The main minerals found are gold, silver, copper, iron-ore, manganese, limestone, dolomite, asbestos, bauxite, chromite, kaolin and granite rock. More than 90% of the gold produced in India is produced in the southern part of Karnataka. Kolar Gold Fields (in Kolar District) and Hatti Gold Mines ( in Raichur District) are probably one of the oldest gold mines in the world; besides these, gold reserves have been found in Dharwad and Chitradurga also. Raichur is also known for its silver deposits. Hospet and Bellary are the two districts in the state where significant amount of Iron ore is excavated. Karnataka also has the largest reserves of Manganese ore in the country.
