One of the oldest Hindu kingdoms of southern India, Mysore was built on the remnants of the mighty Vijaynagar Kingdom. The most famous dynasty which ruled Mysore is Wodeyar's but the first Muslim ruler of Mysore was King Haider Ali. He was succeeded by his son Tipu Sultan whose fight against the British glorified the history of Karnataka. After the defeat of Tipu Sultan, the throne was given again to the old ruling family of Mysore ‘Wodeyar’s, and Krishnaraja Wodeyar was installed on the Mysore throne.
