Well it does have some decent shopping outlets but it comes nowhere near the mg road , cochin. You can just laze around and visit some good outlets or restaurants here like KFC. or visit pothys. I guess that is one decent shop on that road. Good that there are more than 10 theatres within 1 km of the road.... More

It is a single six lane road from University stadium to East Fort where you get only three and half lanes to use since the rest is used for parking. The road has all major landmarks of the old city, The Secretariat, AG's Office,University College, Statues of Madhavarayar and Velu Thampi Dalawa, Chandraskharan Nair Stadium and University Stadium, Ayurveda College,...

This road houses most of the shopping area in Tvm. It has all kinds of shops and restaurants. The only problem is you cant take you car out, the traffic will be immense. Better will be to walk to take and auto.

MG Road houses the major shopping centres of Trivandrum; however, both sides of the pedestrian pathways are fully uprooted for some maintenance work and have to struggle walking on a major stretch of the road. No big shoppping malls and only an average set of shops.

It is not surprising that the main artery in nearly every major city of India is named after the Mahatma, but it is ironical that the road represents and feeds conspicuous consumption and consumerism which are the antitheses of the Mahatma's philosophy. Perhaps that's also why the name of the road gets abbreviated quickly to MG Road, so that shoppers... More

This road is the hub-centre for shopping. If you walk up and down you can find all sorts of trade and you can get anything if your purse is allways full!!

A large multi-storied building at the opposite end of MG road from the Padmanabhaswamy temple, and around 3-4 km from there. Among other silk garments, you get the wonderful traditional white Kerala pattu pavadais and pattu saris here - worth a visit. We saw a crazy rush though - seems like everyone in town shops here.

This is the main place where you can get all good shops / Brands & Restaurants. A must visit place for shopaholic. Though you might end up get very less varieties but you will find few big branded shopes.
