MG Road in India is universal, it is found in every major city in the country, integrating different states into a single force of cultural diversity. Named after Mahatma Gandhi, it is synonymous with every Indian. There is something about Mg Road (Bangalore) and surrounding areas you can’t find anywhere else.

MG Road, Bangalore, signifies what India is today, freedom, diversity and chaos.

Bazaar style atmosphere rains through this road, simulating the free markets that have flourished in India from the beginning of time.

Cultural diversity that can be sipped down with a beer at Koshy’s or finger licked with some home cooked anna-sambar from the back of an Omni.

Besides diversity adding to the chaos, 3 m wide gullies open doors behind every building around this region, which in turn light up, illegal shops selling ‘original fakes’ to the popular culture.
