Kuvempu also hailed from the Malenadu region of this area. Kuvempu University, comprising the Shivamogga and Chikkamagalur districts, has been the epicenter of a majority of religious, cultural and social movements of Karnataka. The farmers, the dalit and the socialist movements of Karnataka in the twentieth century were also born here.

This mythical animal, called Gajahamsa (Gaja+Hamsa), is commonly found in the Vijayanagara and the Keladi sculpture and temple art. Symbolically it is supposed to be combination of knowledge and wealth. Lakshmi, the devi (goddess) of wealth, has an elephant as her vehicle.
