Variously known as 'Kolahala', 'Kuvalala' and 'Kolala', in addition to puranic affiliations, Kolar is a veritable gallery of Pre-historic archaeology, especially Neolithic, Chalcolithic and Megalithic cultures of Karnataka. Hunkunda is one such pre-historic site spread to an area of about 1.5 km. From the surface are collected potsherds from Neolithic to Early Historic period. To the west of the site are several cave shelters which once served as dwelling places for the pre historic man. A few neoliths were also picked up from this place.
