The quintessential residential area, Jayanagar is a hub in south Bangalore. The ten blocks making up the locality range from the quiet and serene surroundings of the 1st Block to the dynamic and happening locales of the IIIrd and IVth Blocks. It comes as no surprise then that many of the world’s wealthiest Bangaloreans proudly call Jayanagar their home.
Jayanagar has remained a planned neighborhood right from the very start. The locality retains this quality to this day, thanks to proactive local government bodies. This aspect yields Jayanagar a self-assured and self-sustaining quality. But apart from the independent growth factor, Jayanagar also lies in good company, with JP Nagar, BTM Layout, Banashankari, and Basavanagudi being its cosmopolitan neighbors.
Although most of Jayanagar is purely residential, parts of it, like the IIIrd and IVth blocks, are commercial hubs. Jayanagar Shopping Complex and Garuda Swagath Mall are two popular shopping zones in this locale.
