Yelahanka is a suburb of
Bangalore in the state of Karnataka and one of the zones of BBMP. It is older
than the Bengaluru city which has now overgrown engulfing many of its
neighboring villages and towns.
Some Temples in Yelahanka—like the Venugopala Swamy
Temple—have remained as a testimony to its rich past. Although a Fort's remnant
could not be traced, a street nearby the Venugopala Swamy Temple is still known
as 'Kote Beedi' or 'Fort Street'.Yelahanka lies
to the north of Bengaluru. It was a Municipal council and Taluk headquarters
prior to the formation of BBMP and now forms
a part of greater Bengaluru. A well-planned township was developed during early The 1980s to the south of the city by Karnataka Housing Board and is identified by
several names like 'Yelahanka Upanagara', 'Yelahanka Satellite Town',
'Yelahanka New Town' or simply 'Housing Board'.
Yelahanka is on the verge of being the prime real estate hub
in North Bengaluru owing to its vast undeveloped areas and easy access to the
Kempe Gowda International Airport. Yelahanka has seen remarkable developments
since its inception. Off recently many major retail outlets started setting up
shops here. Major ones are Yelahanka Central, Pepper fry Studio, RMZ Galleria
Mall and Dmart in Yelahanka New Town.
