About Kolar:

This constituency covers the entire district of Kolar, which is the easternmost district of Karnataka. Known as the ‘Golden Land of India’ for its rich reserves of gold fields, this district is economically resplendent. However, these gold fields were closed in the year 2003, with the deposits nearing exhaustion. The district primarily survives on agriculture, sericulture and floriculture. This district is also termed the 'Land of Silk, Milk and Gold', owing to its superior quality of these products. Some of the famous trading markets in the area are Kolar sericulture and agriculture market at Kondarajanahalli, mango trading market at Srinivaspura, besides a number of jewellery shops in the Kolar Gold Fields.
