Erstwhile South Parade is Bangalore’s shopping and entertainment hub, along with nearby Brigade Road, Church Street and Commercial Street. Old-timers reminisce fondly about the grand avenue this once was. Many old landmarks have been torn down to make way for characterless glass buildings. The metro running over the road proved to be the proverbial nail in the coffin for MG Road’s beauty. Thankfully, some of the vibe still survives. Walk along and enjoy a few gems that survived the massacre.

In earlier days (27 yrs ago) the MG Road was a "must". You'll find Western shops and various places to stop for a coffee. The Metro stop is handy. From there the Brigade... read more

It is one of the tragedies of the city that an iconic landmark, that was a synonym for sightseeing, a casual stroll, window shopping, making/meeting friends is now just a chaotic mish-mash of really heavy traffic, blaring horns, and hurried pedestrians trying to duck for cover from the oncoming cars, and what was a well known destination for Arts and...

MG road is very long and a main arterial road joining one end of the city centre to the other end. There is always traffic congestion and the blasting of horns along this road - even at 11pm ! the car drivers, motorised rickshaw drivers and motor cycle riders just weave in & out with no lane discipline. Pedestrians also... More

Almost every cosmopolitan city in the country has one of these. The life center where the young throng. Has an array of shops and all happening food joints. Be it clothing, handicrafts or just plain window shopping.
