The road starting from the central railway station to Palayam is named Mahatma Gandhi Road and is one of the well planned road in the city but due to the hectic traffic the road becomes too conjusted frequently. Most of the business centers and government establishments are on this road and hence crowded too. We have to park our vehicle... More

One of the most congested and often closed and traffic diverted when Kerala's most famed 10000 plus parties take their demonstrations to the local Secretariat.

Mahatma Gandhi Road, the main road in the city of Trivandrum is the paradise for shoppers. On both the sides you find shops selling stationary to clothes, grocery to watches, handicrafts to gold jewelry, footwear to silk sarees, electronics to food joints, sports items and so on. Also has a number of banks, currency exchange, book stalls, kids shoppee etc.... More

Lot of shopping options in the heart of the city. Many malls. Prefer to take local transport as parking could be a issue, as small by lanes access roads to these malls.

MG road here is a really a shopping hub in Thiruvananthapuram with popular shops selling top branded items. Even groceries & spices can also be purchased from this wide street. You can't miss the aroma of coffee powder from Sankers Coffee on MG road while walking through here.

It include shopping malls, stadiums, colleges, hotels, historic monuments, theatres etc. The road has heavy traffic during peak hours and most... More
