Adoni Travel guide is incomplete without a mention of its rich cultural and spiritual legacy. It is said that Lord Rama had frequented this place during his Vanvasa years. Adoni is believed to have been an important part of the Vijaynagar Empire.
In the 16th century the place was ruled by the Yadavas and was known as Yadavagiri. Under a Muslim ruler, it was renamed as Adavani and then Adoni. It continued to be ruled by the Islamic rulers until 1792. A war between the then ruler Tipu Sultan and the East India Company in the early 18th century resulted in Adoni being constituted in the Bellary district of the Madras Presidency under the British Government.
In the days of British Rule, Adoni was the local center for businesses. Though, many businesses like rice mills etc. have been closed now but the place still enjoys rich harvest of Cotton and hence the name Town of Cotton or Grain Market of South India has been given to Adoni.
