The village of Muddenahalli is situated 7 kms from the Chikballapur district and 55 kms from Bangalore. It is the birthplace of M. Visvesvarayya, one of the most accomplished engineers in India.
There is a memorial of Sir M. Visvesvarayya on the family owned land of Muddenahalli. The Nandi Hills as a backdrop provides a view worth capturing. The museum located there was renovated on his 150th birth ceremony.
