The region was ruled by Alpas until the late 14th century, after which it was ruled by Emperor Vijayanagara, Keradinayakas, Haider Ali, Tipu Sultan, and the British in 1799. Prior to 1860, Dakshinakannada was part of a district called Canara under the Madras Presidency. In 1860, the British divided the area into southern Kanara and northern Kanara. During the reorganization of the state in 1956, Kasaragod was split and moved to the newly created Kerala, and Dakshina Kannada was moved to Mysore (now Karnataka). In 1997, the government divided the Dakshina Kannada district into the Udupi district and what is now the Dakshinakannada district.
