Hosur Knowledge Guide
The Chandrachoodeshwara Swamy Temple, an 11th century temple, has inscriptions that tell about the contributions made by Rajendra Chola. Hoysalas ruled Hosur around 1200 A.D after the decline of Chola Empire and contributed to the temple. Then it came under Vijayanagara Samrajyam. Later, Hosur was part of Mysore Province until 1799. When Tipu Sultan lost the third Anglo-Mysore war, he handed over the southern part of the Mysore kingdom as a partial settlement to the English government.
