Kempe Gowda I - Later Life and Legacy

Later Life and Legacy

In the mid 16th century due to a complaint from neighbouring Palegar (ruler), Jagadevaraya of Channapattanathe, Emperor Sadashivaraya of Vijayanagar Empire under the supervision of Aliya Ramaraya, imprisoned Kempe Gowda for minting his own coins without the Emperor's prior approval and for fear of rise in power at Penukonda. His territories were also confiscated. He was later released after being imprisoned for five years.

He passed away in 1569, having ruled for about 56 years. A metallic statue of Kempe Gowda was posthumously installed in 1609 at Gangadhareshwara temple at Shivaganga. In 1964, another statue was erected in front of the Corporation offices in Bangalore. According to some literary sources, Bengaluru Kempe Gowda's elder son Gidde Gowda took over control after his death.
