Hemmadi or Hemmady is village on the banks of Chakra river. The village is located in Kundapura taluk of Udupi district. The village is situated on National Highway 17, a road from here goes to Kollur via Vandse.

Hemmadi is well-known all over for cultivation of Marigold and Chrysanthemum flowers or popularly known as ‘Hemmadi Sevantige’…. Experts say that the soil and environment of Hemmadi suits  the cultivation of marigold flowers. It is owing to this reason that marigold growers of Hemmadi are able to get maximum yield. Marigold flowers are a special attraction during winter season when they bloom. They are also main source of income to many agriculturists of the area.
