Brief Description

Transition from a secluded area on the city’s outskirts having only graveyards and grape wines to a partially developed, semi urban residential area. This is what Konanakunte has witnessed over the last two decades. Konanakunte, as the name goes likely means “Namma Metro project, Konanakunte will become much more easily accessible and hence it is foreseen that a further surge in the population of this area will occur.
