Directions to reach the Institute

RRI is in Sadashivanagar in the northern part of Bangalore. It is situated on C.V. Raman Avenue connecting Mekhri Circle (pronounced as 'Make-ree' circle) and the Indian Institute of Science (popularly known as the ‘Tata Institute').

If arriving in Bangalore by Air

The Bangalore International Airport (Kempegowda International Airport) is about 30 km from the Institute. You may take a pre-paid taxi or a Volvo Bus on arrival. App-based cabs are also available (Uber and Ola Cabs). They have their respective pick-up stations in front of the airport. If taking a taxi, please give Mehkri Circle as the landmark and request the driver to avoid the underpass at the circle but instead, take the left side lane up to the traffic signal and turn right onto C V Raman Avenue. The Institute gate is on the left side of this avenue, a few hundred meters from the Circle. The Institute campus wall with stone masonry along the road is recognizable, and one gate along this wall is normally open.

If taking a Volvo or other bus from the airport (often referred to as KIA buses), get off at the Bus Stop for Mehkri Circle, which is located before the beginning of the underpass of the Mehkri Circle, opposite the Air Force Training Command. The Institute is about half a kilometre from the Bus Stop. It may be noted that KIA-10 brings you to the RRI gate soon after it turns right at 'Mekhri Circle'. Please make sure that you have informed the bus conductor about this request halt at Mekhri Circle.

If arriving by rail

You might get off at three railway stations: Yeshwantpur, Bangalore Cantonment and Bangalore City (KSR Bengaluru). Consider hiring an auto-rickshaw or a taxi to get to the Institute from the railway stations. The driver may be asked to go to the Raman Research Institute campus, located close to Mekhri Circle, on C V Raman Avenue, in Sadashivanagar.

If arriving on a bus

The Main Bus Station (Majestic Bus Station), where all the government transport buses arrive, is situated just opposite the Bangalore City Railway Station (KSR Bengaluru). Consider taking an auto-rickshaw or taxi to get to the Institute.
