In this article, the authors present Kalyatazzappa,  a historical hero of the Kodagu who lived during the period of Virarajendra Odeya, the first king of Haleri dynasty. Along with Kaataalu Bolthu, a tribal hero and his intimate friend, Kalyatazzappa fought against Karnembahu of Tavunadu in favour of Haleri King in the 16th Century. The idol of Kalyatazzappa riding a horse with a royal umbrella can be seen in many shrines across Kodagu. Authors have presented the complete folk song which is still in vogue in the region.
