Jayanagar is a bustling suburb located at the southern end of Bangalore
. Set up in 1948, this is a relatively new addition to the medieval period city. It is currently one of Asia’s largest residential colonies. The total area is divided into 9 blocks, of which 3rd and 4th blocks are the main commercial centers while the rest are residential areas.
Jayanagar boasts an excellent road system designed in a grid-like fashion, which facilitates the easy tracing of an address. This is a preferred place of residence for many professionals, especially those belonging to the IT field owing to its proximity to the Electronic City, a 320 acre area housing many software and hardware companies.
Koramangala, another of Bangalore’s prominent residential and commercial areas, is to the east of Jayanagar.
Bangalore City Junction Railway Station is the nearest railhead, while Bangalore International Airport is the nearest airport.
