  Monuments
  Karnataka is one of the four southern states of India the others being Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh. The state of Karnataka was created in 1956 with the passing of the States Reorganisation Act. Originally known as the State of Mysore after the princely state and was renamed Karnataka in 1973. The monuments in Karnataka thus cover a huge time frame in history, dating back as early as the 5th century, and as early as the post independence era.

  Excavations
  Brahmagiri is located close to Siddapur where two Minor Rock-edicts of Ashoka were discovered in 1891. These inscriptions, besides indicating the southern most extent by the Mauryan empire, also mentions the locality known as Isila, the headquarters of the Mahamatras of Suvarnagiri. A habitation site was discovered here in 1940 M.H. Krishna (IAR Mysore Arch. Dept. for 1940, p. 63). He excavated 16 trenches in different parts of the site and recognized five cultural strata: Microlithic, Neolithic, Iron Age, Mauryan, and Chalukya-Hoysala.

  National Mission on Monuments & Antiquities
  India has an extraordinarily rich, vast and diverse cultural heritage in the form of built heritage, archaeological sites and remains since prehistoric times. The sheer magnitude in number alone is overwhelming and these are the symbols of both cultural expression and evolution. There now appears to prevail a fundamental lack of knowledge, understanding and, perhaps, interest in our past: in what constitutes the heritage of India, the process that governed its coming into being, and how this heritage relates to the people. Its manifestations expressed in cultural forms are losing their traditional essence in rapidly transforming lifestyles in an era of industrial growth.
