Rich Heritage of Trade and Commerce of Tumkur District

Title:Rich Heritage of Trade and Commerce of Tumkur District
Author:Patil M.B
Publication:Itihasa Darshana / Karnataka Itihasa Academy, Bangalore
Enumeration:Vol 4, 1989
Abstract:The present Tumkur district, considered as one of the economically backward districts in the old Mysore area, had a heritage of being a prosperous wealthy region with rich hinterlands in the ancient and medieval periods. This is attested by the inscriptional sources found in the district in several places like Albur, Koti Nayakanhalli, Nidugal, Gubbi, Sampige, Nittur and Sivara. Buchanan has given detailed accounts of trade and commerce of the district during 1800 AD. Later in the modern period under the commissionerís rule and then under the dewans of Mysore the economy of the district improved considerably.
