HSR Layout, short form of Hosur-Sarjapur Road Layout, is fairly a new colony located in the south-east of Bengaluru, India. The area has become a gateway to Electronic City, which is a major IT hub of the city.

Like many residential areas in the Bangalore city, HSR Layout is divided into many Sectors from Sector 1 to Sector 7, which are criss-crossed by main roads and cross roads. Main roads run north-south and Cross roads run through east-west. The neighboring villages surrounding the area are Agara, Parangipalya, Mangammanapalya, Venkatapura, and Hosapalya which are also part of HSR Layout.
