RAMANAGARAM situated in a valley
surrounded by (48 km from Bangalore) rocky hillocks is 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 in a
Persian 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.
But the present name, of Ramanagaram finds its origin from the once existed
village Ramagiri below the Ramadevarabetta. The present town has an Agrahara on
the left bank of the Arkavati with a
built in later Vijayanagara style. The temple is said to have been renovated by
Krishnaraja Wodeyar III. It is facing west and has a Garbhagriha, a spacious
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 Prasannambadevi shrine
and to the right is another small shrine of Venugopalaswamy.
