According to legend, once the Hoysala king Veera Ballara was lost his way during a hunting expedition. He met an old lady and she offered a humble meal of boiled beans to him. In order to show his gratitude, he named the place as Benda Kalluru. The modern city of Bangalore was founded over 400 years ago by Kempe Gowda, the Vijayanagara Chieftain of Yelahanka.
