Marathahalli is a suburb of Bangalore city in Karnataka state of India. Halli in Kannada means village. A fighter aircraft named Marut had an accident in this area, hence the area is called Marathahalli. The Outer Ring Road of Bangalore passes through Marathahalli.
Marut in Hindi/ Sanskrit refers to the god of wind/air in Hindu mythology.
Until the late 1990s the area was a sleepy village in the outskirts of Bangalore. Following the IT boom, its close proximity to HAL Airport, Whitefield, Sarjapur Road and Electronic City and the presence of the Outer Ring Road, this area has boomed into a self-sufficient township. There are a large number of cloth stores, shopping malls, supermarkets and other shops in this area which retail products at a cheaper rate compared to the rest of the city. A large number of flats and IT companies have also come up in the area. The first multiplex in Bangalore, Innovative Multiplex is located here.
