Bangalore – story behind the name

Legend goes that King Veeraballa of Vijayanagara once lost his way in
forest. Hungry and tired, he came upon a lone hut in the thick forest
where he met an old woman.When he asked for food, she gave him baked
beans (‘Benda Kalu’ in Karnataka).The King found this humble meal taste
better than the richest fare.To commemorate this incident, he called the
place “Benda Kalu Ooru” (place of baked beans). Bangalore today is
getting popular though for a different variety of Beans-JavaBeans 🙂 .
