Krishnarajanagara


Krishnarajanagara (sometimes abbreviated to K.R. Nagara)is a town in Mysore district in the Indian state of Karnataka.


Krishnarajanagara was founded between 1925s and 1930s as a new town, when a flood by river Kaveri damaged the nearby old town called Yedatore. The town was shifted to a place 3 miles south and at a higher elevation, now called Krishnarajanagara. It was named after Krisharaja Wodeyar, the maharaja of Mysore. Krishnarajanagara is a town with broad roads. Krishnarajanagara is well connected by rail and road to places such as Mysore, Hassan and Hunsur. The famous Chunchanakatte Falls are located about 13 km from Krishnarajanagar.


Arkeshwara Swamy temple is situated on the bank of river Kaveri and a jathra (car festival) is celebrated on Rathasaptami day.
