Nagarbhavi is a residential area of Bangalore, Karnataka, India. Located in West Bangalore, Nagarbhavi is located between Mysore road and Magadi road.

It is surrounded by Vijaynagar on the north, Bangalore University and Chandra Layout on the east, Magadi road on the west and Sir.M.V.Layout on the south. Nagarbhavi is broadly divided into two areas, called Nagarbhavi 1st stage and Nagarbhavi 2nd stage.

Traditionally known as the home of Bangalore University, this area also houses the prestigious National Law School of India University. This area also houses Dr. Ambedkar Institute of Technology.

Nagarbhavi 1st stage comprises localities like Kalyana Nagara, Nagarbhavi Village, Canara bank colony, Bhairaveshwara Nagara, Moodala Palya, amongst others. These areas are very thickly populated and have a lot of commercial activity along the Nagarbhavi main road. These areas have smaller roads and a rough terrain. Nagarbhavi 2nd stage is a complete contrast to the 1st stage. While the 1st stage is very old, the 2nd stage is a relatively new area. It is very well planned and most of the areas have wide roads and the road connectivity is laudable. Most of the roads here are now tarred, ending the age old woes of the people residing here. The BDA has divided Nagarbhavi 2nd stage into blocks 1-12. In addition, well planned residential localities like Annapoorneshwari Nagara, ITI Layout, MPM Layout, NGEF Layout and Papareddy Palya form a part of this area.having a famous restaurants mane Ruchi,saathi restaurant


In Kannada, the language of a majority of the inhabitants of the city of Bangalore, Nagarbhavi means literally "a well of snakes". It is not conclusively known, however, why it is called so. One school of thought is that the name is due to the high number of snakes present in the area. Also, some believe that it is called a "well" because of the surrounding hillocks that are no longer present due to urbanization. Nagarbhavi got its prime importance due to the establishment of Institute for Social and Economic Change (ISEC) in 1973. The site was chosen by Late Professor VKRV Rao for ISEC. A road was laid and that changed the culture of Nagarbhavi, with professors from all over the country coming and settling down in Nagarbhavi.
