The local Hindu deity Mangaladevi, after which the city of Mangalore derives its name

The city of Mangalore was named after the local Hindu deity Mangaladevi.[2] According to legend Matsyendranath, one of the important protagonist of the Nath cult had arrived at Mangalore with the princess of Kerala, Premaladevi. He converted the princess to his cult and named her Mangaladevi. It is believed that they could not proceed further as Mangaladevi died after a brief period of illness and a temple was consecrated in her name at Bolar.

One of the earliest references to this city name is made by Pandya King Chettian, who called the city as Managalapuram in 715 AD. Yet another historical reference is by the 11th-century Arabian traveler Ibn Batuta, whose chronicles refer to Mangalore as Manjarur. This variation in spelling is attributed to the pronunciation gap between and Arabic and the local language.[3] Later in 1526 AD, the Portuguese took possession of Mangalore, thus corrupting the word Mangaluru to its present form Mangalore. After subsequent British occupation in 1799, this Portuguese catchword was later assimilated in the English language.[4] The Pandyan kingdom was an ancient state at the tip of South India, founded around the 6th century BCE. It was part of the Dravidian cultural area, which also comprised other kingdoms such as that of the Pallava, the Chera, the Chola, the Chalukya and the Vijayanagara. ...

The cosmopolitan nature of Mangalore is centuries old. This is reflected in the names used by the various linguistic groups in this region. In the native Tulu language, the city is known as Kudla meaning ‘junction’ as the city is situated at the confluence of the two rivers – Nethravathi and Phalguni. Konkanis use the variant Kodial. The Bearys, a Muslim community who speak a dialect of their own, call it Maikala. On the occasion of Suvarna Karnataka in 2006, the Karnataka state government stated that the city would be renamed Mangalooru in English.[5] This change in name has not been implemented due to staunch opposition from the natives of Mangalore as well as Mangaloreans across the world.

He had mentioned that the town was a trading centre and Persian and Yemeni merchants disembarked at Mangalore.[13] In 1448, Abdul Razak, a Persian Ambassador passed via this route to Vijayanagar.

The European influence in Mangalore can be traced back to the year 1498, when the Portuguese explorer Vasco Da Gama had landed at St Mary's Islands near Mangalore on his voyage from Portugal to India.[16] In 1520 the Portuguese took control of the area from Vijayanagara rulers. In 1526, the Portuguese viceroy Lapaz-De-Sampayo succedded in defeating the Bangara king and his allies and the trade passed out of Muslim hands into Portuguese hands. During the 16th and 17th centuries, the Portuguese commanded the Arabian Sea from the port of Mangalore and they intruded actively in the affairs of the local chieftains.[7] In 1695, the town was burnt by the Arabs in retaliation for Portuguese restrictions on Arab trade.[17] Hyder Ali (1722–1782) the ruler of Mysore conquered Mangalore in 1763, and it was under his administration till 1768, before being annexed by the British between 1768 and 1794. Later in 1794 Hyder Ali's son Tippu Sultan again took control of the area.[18] During his regime, the city was caught in the crossfires of Anglo-Mysore relations.
