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.

Visit to Bangalore is never complete without a visit to the MG Road. The place to be in for window shopping and the road to show off

Heard a lot about MG Road in Bangalore and when I got a chance to visit the place i was quite happy. The ambience around the shops and restaurants make the area quite vibrant and happening.

Too much traffic, noise and sidewalk vendors for my taste, however tourists do get a good feel for the cultural and shopping experience in bustling Bangalore.
