Malmaddi is a residential area in Dharwad city, Karnataka, India, located near the Dharwad city railway station. The area is mainly inhabited by educated middle-class people. The locality was developed for independent houses (bungalows) with a courtyard and kitchen garden. This type of layout led to friendship among dwellers and harmony, where people used to know not only neighbours, but the entire locality. Many government officers reside in this locality including Deputy Government Officer, V.R Pandurangi.

MaLa ( ಮಾಳ ) in Kannada means "place above normal level" (ಎತ್ತರವಾದ ಬಯಲು ಪ್ರದೇಶ ) and maddi (ಮಡ್ಡಿ) in Kannada means "a hillock" ( ದಿಣ್ಣೆ, ದಿಬ್ಬ, ಗುಡ್ಡ ), a small hill. The two words together refer to the location of Malamaddi on a small hill above the normal elevations in Dharwad.It is near to Dharwad Railway station.
