Bengaluru was first mentioned in records from the Ganga era as a small hamlet, the location of which coincides with modern Halebengaluru near Kodigehalli (not far from Hebbal). It is said that when Kempe Gowda built his new capital town in about 1537,he called it Bengaluru as his mother and wife belonged to the hamlet of Halé Bengaluru (Old Bangalore).
Directorate of Census Operations completed its decadal Census recently. During the Census, the department discovered that Bangalore had human habitation as early as 4,000 B.C (Middle Stone Age), and stone implements were found at Jalahalli, Sudasandra, Siddhapura, and Jadigenahalli belonging to this period. Around 1,000 B.C (Iron Age), burial grounds were established at Koramangala and Chikkajala on the outskirts of Bangalore. In 27 B.C., coins of the Roman emperors Augustus, Tyberious, and Cladius were found at Yeshwantpur and HAL, which indicated the signs of civilisation and Bangalore's trans-oceanic contacts.
Kodigehalli is so called because it was a gift from the king to a resident of that area, who fed him.
