Karnataka Elections: Narasimharaja Assembly Constituency
Narsimaharaja constituency is part of Mysore district. Mysore district has 11 assembly constituencies and Narsimaharaja is one among them. Mysore corporation ward numbers 44 to 60, 64 and 65 fall under this constituency.
The name Mysore is an anglicized version of Mahishūru, which means the abode of Mahisha in the vernacular Kannada.
The common noun Mahisha, in Sanskrit, means buffalo; in this context, however, Mahisha refers to Mahishasura, a mythical daemon who could assume the form of both human and buffalo, who, according to Hindu mythology, ruled the ancient parts of Mysore Kingdom knows, in Sanskrit, as Mahíšhaka, centred at Mahishapura.
He was killed by the Goddess Chamundeshwari, whose temple is situated atop the Chamundi Hills, after whom it is named. 'Mahishapura' later became Mahisūru (a name which, even now, the royal family uses), and finally came to be anglicized as Mysore by the British and Mysuru in the vernacular Kannada language.
Tanveer Sait from the Congress is the current MLA and he defeated Abdul Majid K H of SDPI.
