MG Road, Bangalore Overview

One of the busiest roads in Bangalore, MG Road or Mahatma Gandhi Road is a hub of recreational and commercial activity in the city. Swarming with people at almost all the time, MG Road is a one-stop destination for a perfect weekend shopping adventure. Items such as traditional handicrafts, silk, sarees and cutlery and bone china sets are easily available here among other enticing goods. And once you get tired of shopping and are looking for a quick bite to eat, a plethora of cafes and restaurants here are at your service. Nights at MG Road call for partying and dancing till you drop and it packs quite a few high-end pubs as well. One of the most popular shopping and entertainment hubs of Bangalore, MG Road is a must visit when you're in the city.

It was known as South Parade during the pre-independence era but was renamed as Mahatma Gandhi Road or MG Road on 26th February 1948. Today, MG Road is best known for its amazing shopping experience, restaurants, cafes and food outlets offering delectable delicacies. With its own metro station now since 2011, MG Road runs east from Trinity Circle at one end towards Anil Kumble Circle at the other end. Once flocked with old buildings, today the avenue is all about fancy glass buildings mixed with an old vibe exhibited by few old-time structures. Take a stroll on the street and enjoy the bright atmosphere at MG Road!

Of all the excitement that holds in MG road, one thing that absolutely makes me happy about the place especially during festive seasons is the lighting. Nothing could match the ambience of the season (Read More) as much as the series of lights that brighten and deck up MG road.

MG Road or Mahatma Gandhi Road is one of the most busiest and well known streets of Bangalore. It is easily accessible by the purple line of the Namma Metro. What drew me to this area is the plethora (Read More) of activities it offers. Lined with offices, shops and eateries and other establishments I find that there’s always something to do. The adjoining streets of Brigade Road and Church Street have eateries, restaurants, clubs and shops of every kind, adhering to every budget. I find that there always something to do or explore in this area and it is always exciting to be here.
