The Rangacharlu Memorial Hall, now known as Mysore Town Hall, or simply the Town Hall, was constructed in 1884 in memory of Diwan Sir C. V. Rungacharlu, the first diwan of Mysore post-restoration of monarchy in the Kingdom of Mysore in 1881.[1]

The construction was sponsored by Maharaja Chamarajendra Wadiyar X. Rangacharlu's successor Diwan Sir K. Sheshadri Iyer was the building's chief engineer and planner.
