Davangere - The Oxford of India

Situated right in the centre of Karnataka  at a distance of 260 Km  from Bangalore on the NH-4 ; Bangalore-Pune National Highway. It is located at 14°28' altitude and 75° 59' latitude with an elevation of 602.5mts above the mean sea level. 


In the year 1997, Davangere was separated from Chitradurga district and made district head quarters consisting of six taluks viz., Davangere, Harihara, Honnali, Chennagiri, Jagalur and Harapanahalli. This city is an important educational, commercial and industrial centre. It was, once a well known centre for textile spinning and weaving mills, the "Manchester of Karnataka', but, today it is well on its way to be known as the Educational capital of South India; thanks to the far reaching vision of the Bapuji Educational Association.
