Karnataka has a history much older when he became a state of India. In fact, in ancient times it was known as Karunadu, an edict of Ashoka shows that was then under the dynasty of the Maurya. The great emperor Chandragupta Maurya abdicated to embrace the Jain religion at Shravanabelagola. There were many dynasties who ruled the state. The Chalukya, between the tenth and twelfth centuries, they built the most ancient Hindu temples, and had their capital at Badami. In the same period are the temples and caves temples of Aihole and Pattadakal.

The Hoysala who ruled between the eleventh and fourteenth centuries, they built more than 150 temples, each of which is a true work of art; if they find the evidence to Somnathpur, Halebid and Belur. This was followed by the reign of Vijayanagara, from the fourteenth to the sixteenth century, an example of which are the spectacular ruins of Hampi.
