Raichur was administered by Mauryan ruler Ashoka, as witnessed in the presence of three minor rock edicts of Ashoka found in the region. In AD 1363, this district was in the hands of the Bahamani Sultanate, before moving to the Bijapur Sultanate. Although Raichur is known as one of the very few places in the country with gold reserves, such as the Hatti Gold Mines, and is famous for growing superior quality of rice, this district has been identified as one of the backward districts of the country, receiving financial aid from the government.
