Where to stay near M.G. Road

Exploring M.G. Road

M.G. Road, or Mahatma Gandhi Road, is a relatively short strip in the centre of Bengaluru that is nevertheless one of the city’s busiest and best known thoroughfares. Running from Anil Kumble Circle in the west to Trinity Circle in the east, it takes in some star city facets, including the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. This street, or boulevard, is also a retail district hosting many shopping malls and famous department stores, along with popular restaurants and bars, theatres, banks, and grand hotels like the five-star The Oberoi, Bangalore.

Prior to it becoming Mahatma Gandhi Road after independence in 1948, M.G. Road was known as South Parade under the British. It has undergone expansion ever since. The Bangalore Metro now runs here, with a station about midway along the strip.

Sights nearby

Here, you are best placed for taking in many of Bengaluru’s main sights. The M. Chinnaswamy Stadium is right on this road plus Cubbon Park, which houses some of the city’s main institutions and museums, is close by.

- M. Chinnaswamy Stadium

This stadium is one of the top cricket grounds in India, regularly hosting big matches with the likes of England, Australia, and Sri Lanka. It is used for five-day Test matches as well as for IPL one-day matches, and typically gets packed with locals. The stadium is at the western end of M.G. Road and is favoured more than most other arenas in India by visiting teams due to its extra bounce.

- Cubbon Park

The main city park of Bengaluru is in the M.G. Road district and is a wonderful place to go when it gets too hot, or for exercise. The park is massive and has miles of tracks and some big trees that were planted here in the mid-1800s. There’s also a dog park within Cubbon Park along with the State Library and the Venkatappa Art Gallery. Sree Kanteerava Stadium is just south of here.

- Kerala State Handicrafts Emporium

In among the malls and shops is the Kerala State Handicrafts Emporium, showcasing arts and crafts of the region since the 1960s. There are many showrooms with a great variety of handicrafts, with everything from rosewood to bamboo and brass objects, along with masses of artwork. You can see the artisans at work here.

- Indiranagar

Just east of the eastern end of M.G. Road is the residential area of Indiranagar. Well connected by bus and metro, it has plenty of sightseeing options and alternative high-end hotels to stay at. The Someswara Temple, a centuries-old temple of Lord Someshwara featuring a variety of architectural styles, is a star attraction in this district.

Eating and drinking and shopping nearby

M.G. Road is one of the top areas in Bengaluru for entertainment and shopping. There are myriad places to eat, including independent restaurants and hotels like the Royal Orchid Central Bangalore, as well as fast food joints in the malls. Head to the Trinity end of the strip for the best of it; this is where most of the hotels and malls are located. Shopping for handicrafts is perhaps better on the M.G. Road than anywhere else in the city.

Public transport

The Bangalore Metro runs right through the M.G. Road district to nearby Indiranagar. Trains run throughout the day but get crowded during rush hours and when big games are on at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. Buses also ply both ends of the road and official taxis hang around the main hotels and malls. You can also walk M.G. Road, which is easily accessible from HAL Airport to the east.
