''' Hebbur ''' is a village in the southern state of Karnataka, India. It is located in the Tumkur taluk of Tumkur district in Karnataka.

The Sri Kamakshi Sharada Mutt, whose presiding deity is the goddess Kamakshi Sharada, is in the town. A very rare piece of Hindu iconography, called the 'Shri Chakra' made of panchaloha, an alloy of five metals, is installed in the shrine. It is supposed to represent the Primeval Energy from which the whole universe issues forth, and is held very auspicious by many Hindus. This icon is believed to have been found in a deep well in this tiny town.

This town was earlier called as 'Ghanapuri', which is a Sanskrit translation of its Kannada name, Hebburu. The town had more than 100 temples, most of which are in bad shape now.
