Heggadadevana Kote (H D Kote) is a taluk or taluk headquarters in Mysore district in Karnataka. Kakana kote forest lies in Heggadadevana kote taluk. H D Kote is 194 km from Bangalore & 51.4 km from Mysore.
H D Kote has four reservoirs: the Kabini, Nugu, Hebbala and Taraka reservoirs. Ironically, however, agriculture in this taluk is rain-fed mainly because the government has failed to harness the capacity of the reservoirs. Barring the Kabini reservoir, the other reservoirs are always dry. As a result, farmers who could otherwise raise three crops are able to hardly raise one and are perennially in debt. This is one of the main reasons for the economic backwardness of the taluk and distress migration to cities is common.
