Indiranagar is a medium sized neighbourhood in east Bangalore, Karnataka, India. It is bounded by the Ulsoor to the west, Domlur to the south, Byappanahalli to the north and Vimanapura to the east. Indiranagar is one of the most expensive localities in Bangalore.
Indiranagar was formed as a BDA layout in the early 1980s, and was named after the former Prime Minister of India Indira Gandhi. In the beginning, the locality was basically a residential area. The area was dotted with large bungalows and independent houses, mostly owned by defence personnel. The Information Technology boom in Bangalore in the late 1990s converted Indiranagar into a semi commercial area. Today, Indiranagar is an important residential and commercial hub of Bangalore.
Indiranagar is divided into 2 stages, with the 1st stage being the largest. Unlike the southern and western areas of Bangalore which have a predominantly Kannada speaking population or the northern areas of Bangalore which have large populations of Muslims Thigalas and Tamilians, Indiranagar is a cosmopolitan locality with people from all parts of India living in harmony with each other.
The Namma Metro Purple Line runs through Indiranagar and has two stations within the neighbourhood – Indiranagar and Swami Vivekananda Road. Indiranagar is well connected to most areas of Bangalore with the buses of the BMTC, which also maintains a bus depot in the area.
Localities of Indiranagar include HAL 1st, 2nd and 3rd Stages, Jeevanbheemanagar, Kodihalli, Old/New Thippasandra, GM Palya, CV Raman Nagar, Old Madras Road, Ulsoor, Domlur, Old Airport Road, Ejipura and another very prominent locality is Koramangala.
