Pandavpura was named after the Pandavas. Myth has it that the Pandavas had halted in this town for some time during their exile. Mother Kunti of Pandavas liked the hillock and she made it her favourite getaway.

During India’s pre-independence period the town was named as French Rocks. The town is located in the locality of two rocky hills.

Pandavapura town is encircled by attractive paddy and sugar cane fields. Agriculture is the chief business of the town. Other than agricultural products, one can also find handiworks and ayurvedic products.
