Kokkarebellur, usually reduced by local usage to Kokrebellur, is a village in Karnataka, India. It is situated near Maddur between the cities of Mysore and Bangalore.

The name of the village is derived from "Kokkare" meaning stork and "Bellur" meaning village of jaggery (raw sugar from sugarcane). The district abounds in sugarcane fields and this village is famous for having large colonies of Spot-billed Pelicans and Painted Storks nesting in trees within the village. River Shimsa flows through the village.
