Ajjampura (PIN-577547) is a small town and a hobli headquarters in Tarikere Taluk in the district of Chikmagalur, Karnataka, India. It is unclear if Ajjampura is the second largest town in Tarikere Taluk.
Ajjampura is located at a crossroad. People can travel by road to Tarikere, Birur, Bukkambudhi and Hosadurga(Chithradurga). There is also a railway station, from where one can travel to Bangalore and Davangere.
Ajjampura Railway Station falls within the 'Mysore Division' of the 'South Western Railway Zone' of 'Indian Railways'. Several passenger trains make a stop at this Railway Station. From here, one can catch direct trains to go to places like Bangalore or Davangere. The other closest railway stations are Birur (towards Bangalore) and Shivani (towards Chikkajajur).
Although not much is known about the history of this town, it is believed that the place was originally known as "Keral". An account of this was found in "Mysore: A Gazetteer Compiled for Government by Benjamin Lewis Rice" (First published in London in 1887). The image shows an entry from this Gazetteer.
