The history of Koppal can be traced back to the kingdoms of the Shatabahana, Ganga, Hoysala and Charkya dynasties. The name of the district, or "KOPPAL," can be found in the poetic work of the great poet Kavilla Jamalga. During the Ashoka era, Jainism gained momentum in the region. Therefore, it was called "Jankashi". In the 12th century AD, the social reformer Vaerashaivaism became popular. The old palace and fortress where the annual "Anegundi Uzava" is held still remains. Other important historical sites in the Koppal district are Frigi, Kanakagiri, Itaji, Kucanur, Madinor, Indra Keraparvasa, Phra, Chikkabenakal and Hillebenakar. Prior to independence, Coppal was under Hyderabad in Nizam.
