Malleswaram is a North-Western suburb of Bangalore city. It's one of the zones of BBMP. It was developed as a planned suburb after the great plague of 1898,[1] which caused many people to move out of the city center. It derives its name from the Kaadu Malleswara temple.[2]

HV Nanjundaiah, the first Vice-Chancellor of Mysore University is credited with building of the then suburb of Malleswaram.[2] The neighborhood of Malleswaram hosts people from all walks of life. The Nobel laureate C.V. Raman, scientist Krishnaswamy Kasturirangan, badminton world champion Prakash Padukone and his daughter Deepika Padukone, noted Carnatic musician Doraiswamy Iyengar and film stars Saroja Devi, Radhika Pandit and Jaggesh have all lived here. Malleswaram is home to some of Bangalore's heritage cafés such as Central Tiffin Room Bangalore and Veena Stores. [3]
