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. This place has the Famous Kalyan Sarees / Jayalaxmi / Pothy's / Bhima Jewellery shop / Karal Kada (Best keral authentic... More

MG Road is now much wider. Smaller shops have made way for bigger buildings, an indication that Trivandrum is globalising. Footpath is neat and wide. We walked from the Thampanoor junction upto the Secretariat. But, we couldn't find any good restaurant worth the name, not even a good ice cream parlour.
