Koramangala is a locality in Bangalore, India. Situated in the south-eastern part of the city, it is one of the largest neighborhoods, and is a highly sought residential locality with wide, tree-lined boulevards and a mix of luxury apartments, commercial structures, and posh bungalows. Planned as a suburb post-independence, its location between Bangalore and Electronic City attracted migrants from across the country during Bangalore's tech boom of the late 1990s. Consequently, it has gradually developed into a commercial hub.[1]

GeographyEdit

Koramangala is divided into 8 blocks spread over approximately 1800 acres. Blocks 1–4 are separated from blocks 5–8 by the Inner Ring Road leading to Domlur/Indiranagar. Up to the 1970s, one would pass the village of Adugodi on the Hosur Road and then usually bypass Koramangala which was on the left while going to the industrial suburbs of Bommanahalli or Bommasandra, about 10 and 20 kilometres away respectively. Settlement was sparse in Koramangala, and only towards the late 1970s did more houses get constructed. The road to Bommanahalli and Bommasandra now houses Electronics City, home to many technology firms including the global software giant Infosys.[2][3]

LocationEdit

The distance from Koramangala to Kempagowda International Airport is 41.3 Km and the distance from Koramangala to Majestic Railway station is 10.9 Km.
