Ramanagara was a small village on the Banks of River Arkavati before the British; under Sir Barry Close came to Ramanagara. Due to the presence of Ramagiri Hill adjacent to the village, the village was also called as “SHIVARAMAGIRI”.

After the death of Tippu Sultan, in the historic fourth Mysore war during the year 1799, the hold of the Mysore dynasty was lost and the British were in complete control of the Mysore dynasty. During this time the famous British Officer Sir Barry Close stayed in the hills of Ramagiri for some time. In remembrance of his visit to the Ramagiri Hills, the city was named as “CLOSEPET” as a token of gesture and this has been carved on one of the stones in the Closepet Street. Even today we can see this stone on the street.

In the year 1800, Ramagiri village was named as “CLOSEPET” to honour the British Officer Sir Barry Close. In 1949, it has been named as “RAMANAGARA”. Ramanagara has more hillocks than land area and all these hills are brownish soft granite stones. Because of this type of special granites available here, these granite stones are famous the world over as “CLOSEPET GRANITES”.
