Karnata Bharata Kathamanjari () is the Kannada version of the great Indian epic, Mahabharata. This is written by Kumara Vyasa. It has only the first 10 chapters of the original work.
This version of Mahabharata has been regarded as the greatest of all versions seen in Kannada language. The work has been written in Bhamini Shatpadi, a poetic style of Kannada. For most of the work, poet relies on the original work for story line. The work is famous for the abundance of metaphors, and the poet has been aptly called the king of metaphors.
The work deviates from the original work at many places, especially when the poet has to deal with Karna.
The last 8 chapters of the work was later written in the same style by another poet, in a work titled Uttara Bharata.
