Jayaprakash Narayan Nagara, popularly known as J. P. Nagara, is an established residential area located in the south of the Bangalore conurbation, India named after prominent Indian leader Jayaprakash Narayan. It is located in proximity to prime residential areas such as Jayanagara, Banashankari, Bannerghatta Road and BTM Layout.

The locality in South Bangalore began purely as a residential area but gradually transformed into a cosmopolitan area with opportunity for both residential and commercial projects. This transformation was a result of the boom of colleges and IT industries being set up in the vicinity. Previously it had bungalows and independent houses but the IT boom in the late 1990s converted it into a semi-Jaya Prakashnarayan Nagar, popularly known as JP Nagar, is an upmarket residential and commercial locality.
