JOURNEY INTO THE PAST
Chilkmaglur is considered to be the place of origin and early reign of the Hosysalas, who played a decisive role in the history of South India. It was at Sosevur, identified with Angadi in Mudigere Taluk that Sala, the founder of the Hoysala crest.

The district takes its name from the town 'Chikmagalur' which literally means youngest daughter's town. The place was given as dowry to the youngest daughter of Rukmangada, the chief of Sakrepatna. Another part of the town bestowed on the elder daughter is known as Hiremagalur. But some old inscriptions reveal that these two places were known Kiriya-muguli and Piriyamuguli.
