There are industrial areas (including Jigani), the Bannerghatta forest, neighbourhoods with highrise apartments as well as smaller villages that got merged with greater Bengaluru.

The Begur area in this constituency is of historical importance. The Panchalingeshwara temple is located in the centre of Begur, and has a 1100 years old inscription, which has the oldest existing reference to a place called 'Bengaluru'.

Near this temple, there exists a tiny circular fort, about 1.4 km in area. The date of construction is unknown (no research done), but the existence of a 1100-year-old inscription on the gateway of the fort would suggest the same age for the fort.

The common grouse of residents of the constituency concern the neglected state of public works and utilities. Lack of street lighting and crime is an issue in Gottigere and Anjanapura; while water and garbage disposal system is a common issue throughout the constituency.

M. Krishnappa of BJP is the current MLA and he won against R. Prabhakara Reddy of JD(S) with a margin of 12.03 % margin.
