Kundapura is noted for its 95,000 solar lighting installations by Selco Solar, a Bangalore-based social enterprise.

The name Kundapura can be traced to the Kundeshvara temple built by Kundavarma in the vicinity of the Panchagangavalli river. Kundapura is also described as the 'town of the sun'. The name may be derived from Kunda, meaning jasmine, owing to the abundance of jasmine-trees in the area. According to others, Kunda means 'pillar' in Kannada,[3] and here refers to the traditional method of constructing houses. Kunda has another meaning, indicating a high place. Until the 18th century, nearby Basrur was an important town and Kundapura was built later, particularly during the British period. Kundapura is surrounded by water from three sides. To the north lies the Panchagangavali river. To the east lies the Kalaghar river. To the west lie the Kodi back waters and the Arabian Sea), leaving the south side as the main connecting land mass.
