History[edit]

Vidyaranyapura is a colony that was formed around the late 1970s. It was formerly owned by a rich landlord and he still owns a large mango garden called Dinshaw Estate. Legends suggest that it could have been a battlefield at some point of time. This might have been possible as it is next to a place called Dandina Kodigehalli ('Dandina' in Kannada means a cantonment or military camp).

The township is named after the great Kannada poet, saint and a priest, Vidyaranya. Folklore says that Kempe Gowda, the founder of Bangalore, was born here.
