Chitradurga District, covering an expanse of 8,440 sq. km derives its nomenclature from Chitrakaldurga, which is an etymological representation of an umbrella-shaped lofty hill located in the district.
The district lies in the heart of the Vedavati River vally and finds mention in the chronicles of the epic Ramayana and the Mahabharata. Tumkur, Chikmagalur, Davanagere and Bellary District of Karnataka and Anantapur District of Andhra Pradesh state form Chitradurga's geographic barriers.

With a population size of 1,517,896, Chitradurga has a distinctly agrarian economy complemented by a strong industrial backbone owing to its rich mineral deposits.
