Horamavu is an area in Bangalore in Indian state of Karnataka. It is a rapidly growing suburb, which is adjacent to other areas such as Banaswadi, Kalkere and Ramamurthy nagar in North Bangalore. The Krishnarajapuram railway station, an important railway junction in Bangalore, is just 3 km away.
Horamavu today is very strategically placed off the ring road and close to three important stations, K.R Puram, Banaswadi and Bangalore East. Horamavu has a good number of planned layouts like Sai Sankalpa Layout, P&T Layout, Nandanam Colony, Ashirwad Colony, Bank Avenue Colony, Papaiya Layout, Coconut Grove Layout, etc.
Large scale real estate development in Horamavu is also causing a lot of damage in some part of areas. The Raja Kaluves and lakes are being enroached destroying an area which was once rich in flora and fauna. Like the newly developing areas, there are no areas identified for gardens and parks Bangalore is famous for.
Water is also a serious issue in some areas but in some areas it is witnessed that water has seen at 600 ft. Borewells today have to be dug below 1000 ft to get water. There is no sewage and water supply facilities in the entire Horamavu.
Horamavu railway crossing is traffic bottleneck during the times when trains pass through. It can take up to 45 minutes for a 4-wheeler to cross this junction during congested times. There is no progress on the proposed underpass construction since many years.
Snakes have been a cause of constant trouble for people living in this area as it is still developing and several sites are left uninhabited.
