RAMANAGARAM (48 km from Bangalore) situated in a valley surrounded by rocky hillocks was
a sub-divisional headquarters from 1884. It became a taluk headquarters in 1928, and the place was
named Ramanagaram in 1949 . It is the biggest cocoon marketing centre now. It is spread on either
banks of the Arkavati and the old bridge connecting the town was built by Sir Barry Close, the
Resident at the Royal Court of Mysore. Hence, the place was named as Closept, as mentioned inPersian as well as Kannada record, erected by Diwan Purnaiah in 1800. The township was also
founded around the same time for greater security of the high road, which then passed through a
wild forest route. The present name, of Ramanagaram finds its origin from the once existed village
Ramagiri at the foothills of the Ramadevarabetta. The present town has an Agrahara on the left bank
of the Arkavati with a temple of Arkeshwara built in later Vijayanagara style. The temple is said to
have been renovated by Krishnaraja Wodeyar III, facing west and has a Garbhagriha, aspacious
Navaranga and has an inner Prakara. The Linga was reinstalled about four years ago. The
annual Jatra is held on Phalguna Shuddha Poornima, when more than 2,000 people assemble.
Beside this temple, to the left, is the Prasannambadevishrine and to the right is another small shrine
