Maha-Mandalaswara Birud-antembara-ganda Raja Shri Hiriya Bola Chamaraja Wodeyar IV (25 July 1507 - 9 November 1576) or Chamaraja Wodeyar IV, was Raja of Mysore (r. 1572 - 1576). He was youngest son of Chamaraja Wodeyar III, Raja of Mysore.


He was struck by lightening and reduced to baldness, thereafter nicknamed Bola (the bald).

In 1572, he succeeded on the death of his elder brother Timmaraja Wodeyar II. He expelled the Vijayanagar envoys and revenue collectors from Mysore.

On 9 November 1576, he died and his nephew Chamaraja Wodeyar V succeeded him.
