Burrowed between Avalahalli Lake and Nice Ring Road lies the developing locality of Anjanapura. The area forms a part of the residential cluster of the southern region of Bengaluru. It enjoys the ambience of a calm and serene residential locality with vast stretches of greenery and parks seated here.
Anjanapura is well planned, neatly divided into colonies like Lal Bahadur Shastri Nagar and Blocks 1 to 11. It houses Anjanapura Central Park, which adds colour to the locality, providing it with ample open and green space. Its proximity to densely populated areas like JP Nagar, Gottigere, Kumaraswamy Layout, Nagegowda Napalaya, and Subramanyapura adds to Anjanapura’s overall appeal.
Primarily being developed as a residential locality, civic infrastructure has been given high importance, with various mini parks, bus stops, and roads like 60 Feet Road and 80 Feet Road established in the area. The locality is also home to the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB). Apart from this, it also hosts the Lal Bahadur Shastri Nagar Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (BESCOM) Substation.
Social, commercial, and economic infrastructure aren’t the locality’s high point. However, oodles of schools, colleges, hospitals, banks, ATMs, restaurants, and shops like grocery stores, automobile stores, and supermarkets that cater to everyday needs are scattered in large proportions in nearby localities, and can be accessed from Anjanapura without any hassle.

Connectivity and Transit Points
Fringed by Bannerghatta Main Road on one side and Kanakpura Road on the other, Anjanapura enjoys impeccable connectivity to nearby localities like JP Nagar, Uttarahalli, Mallasandra, Gottigere, and Hulimavu. Nice Ring Road, which runs through the region, provides quick accessibility to areas like Kengeri, Rajarajeshwari Nagar, and Banshankari. The road further converges into Hosur Road towards the south-eastern side and facilitates connectivity to the industrial areas of Electronic City, Basapura, Kasavanahalli, and Singasandara.
Anjanapura Bus Stop, the locality’s in-house bus stop, facilitates travel to many other important areas of Bengaluru. Local buses ply the bus stop all day, and take commuters to areas like K R Market, Basavanagudi, Jayanagar, IIM Bangalore, Christ College, Lal Bagh, and Town Hall.
Bengaluru’s primary railway station, Bangalore City Junction, is situated 17 km from here, and can be reached within 40 minutes via KR Road. Trains from this station can be boarded to reach various cities in India. Another prominent railway station of Bengaluru, Yeshwantpur Junction is slightly far off, situated at a distance of 36 km, but can be accessed within an hour via the Outer Ring Road.
Bengaluru International Airport, which facilitates domestic and international travel, is situated approximately 51 km from here. It is an hour’s drive from Anjanapura to the airport. BIAL bus services are also operational between these routes, but it takes close to 3 hours to reach the airport using these buses.
Factors for Growth in the Past
Developed by the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), Anjanapura saw development mainly due to the success of its neighbouring localities like JP Nagar and Kumaraswamy Layout. The locality’s proximity to these well-developed residential hubs coupled with ample land availability made it a goldmine for developers like MJ Infrastructure, DS Max Properties, Celebrity Structures, and Sipani Properties.
The establishment of Kanakpura Road also contributed greatly in getting the locality noticed as an investment avenue. Improvements along Nice Ring Road played a pivotal role in showcasing vacant areas like Anjanapura as highly potential real estate hubs, blessed with affordable prices and great connectivity.

Few blocks and colonies of Anjanapura are faced with issues like lack of proper roads, water shortage, and unhygienic garbage disposal. The residents have also complained about vandalism, especially concerning the disposal of alcohol bottles and unnecessary garbage in green areas. Apart from these, few residents are also inconvenienced by the growing number of stray dogs in the area. These issues have collectively caused a swarm of insects to breed around here, compromising the health of the residents.
In some of the quieter areas of Anjanapura, there have been unusual complaints of nuisance created by monkeys. These monkeys do not pose any fatal risk to the residents, but have been adding to the woes of the residents by spilling and dragging garbage across the area.
Another constant complaint that has come forward is the lack of adequate maintenance by the BDA. Even though the majority of the residential plots here are being sold by BDA, their lack of interest in maintaining the civic infrastructure has raised a lot of questions in recent times.
Factors for Future Growth
With the upcoming Phase-II of the Metro project being instilled in the area, the future prospects of Anjanapura look prosperous. The completion of this phase of Namma Metro will provide a quick mode of transport to the residents and stress-free commute from Anjanapura to various other localities of Bengaluru.
The civic authority’s plans to minimise the prevailing garbage disposal issues in the region will provide some relief to the residents and restore the area’s tranquility. The talks of setting up a processing plant around the vicinity will also curb the unhealthy conditions caused by excessive garbage piling.
The locality has recently stirred the interest of many reputed developers like DS Max Properties, Oceanus Group, Sai Snigdha Constructions, and Nitesh Estates, who have launched attractive residential projects like Nitesh British Columbia, Oceanus Iris, DS Max StoneHill, and Sai Snigdha Blossoms. Once these projects are completed, the apartment culture in the area will quickly catch up, and invite many families and working professionals to come settle here.
