Magadi is a town in Ramanagara district in the Indian state of Karnataka. Magadi was the capital of Kempe Gowda who founded Bangalore in the 16th century. In modern literature, the forests around Magadi were the setting of the true story "Old Munnusamy and the man-eater of Magadi" by the India born British hunter Kenneth Anderson. Since then, the wildlife around Magadi has been greatly reduced by poaching and habitat loss. Magadi is fast becoming a part of the growing Bangalore district whose border is just 25 km away. Some noted historical sites in and around Magadi are the Savandurga, the Ranganatha Swamy Temple at Tirumale where a fair is held every April, the ruins of Magadi fort and the Gavi Gangadeshwara temple.
