There were temples / ruins found amidst the houses. God only knows how many such treasures were lost unknowingly by using these temple remains for constructing houses [frustration]

Hi Venkatesh,

You can see a lost tamil speaking people in Hospet. The tamil's migrant history to Hospet is very simple. For the work purpose I had to move to Hospet. I wondered to see some good amount of tamils.

The Tungabhadra Dam was constructed by Tamil Engineer.The main architect of the dam was Thirumalai Iyengar, an engineer from Madras; a general-purpose hall was named after him. While construction of Dam, tamilians migrated and settled in Hospet.
