previously known as Bhagat Singh Nagar
is a small locality situated in East Bangalore.
It is still a mystery how the name Domlur was coined for the place. Some people say it is named after a flower called 'Tombalur' used to worship Lord Shiva. The theory is also fully supported by the inscriptions found in Chokkanathaswamy temple in the locality constructed by Cholas. Another saying states that the name Domlur has been derived from a Telugu word called "Domulu" means mosquito. This can be proved by the significant number of Telugu population in the area.
