Undeniably Bangalore’s most popular locality, Koramangala continues to thrive and is a highly sought-after area. It is situated in the south-eastern pocket of Bangalore, sprawling over 2.82 sq km. Koramangala is divided into 8 blocks, with the 3rd and 7th blocks serving as major commercial hubs.
Largely cosmopolitan in nature, it is the focal point of many important roads like the Inner Ring Road (linking the Airport Road with Hosur Road and Electronic City), Sarjapur Road (leading to the Outer Ring Road, the IT corridor and beyond) and 80 Feet Road (leading to Viveknagar and MG Road at the heart of Bangalore).
Way back, Koramangala was a parched area, unwanted and unused, with even the City Corporation not taking much interest in the locality. Senior Citizens of the city, in search of some peace and quiet surroundings, decided to form an association in an attempt to revive the area. Koramangala now boasts of tree-lined boulevards and well paved avenues making it a prime residential locality, with high-rise apartments, posh bungalows, and modest PG accommodations available for residency.
