Owner description: 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.

Its like the center hub of city. Great place for weekend lunch and dinner as there are lots of cafe/restaurants/bars around. Lot of places to buy stuffs though bit costly. If you want to buy some monuments when on a visit to Bangalore you will get lot of shops. Make sure you bargain. It works ;)

MG was know for its Zero Tollerance Road and Awesome showrooms to shop at. Since metro construction started this place started loosing its original charm. Metro work is done now however this place is not the same...!

Modern Bangalore is the MG Road.Metro Rail adds to the progress of this place.Since the day I got to know the city of Bangalore,M.G Road has been the landmark n identity of this city.

Its OK for a person not used to a city life, else there is nothing great about the road... a commercial place, like any other in a metro.
