Bannerghatta Road, commonly known as BG Road, is one of the fastest growing localities in Bangalore. Located on the State Highway 87, BG Road is a stretch of 49 kilometres that branches off from Hosur Road and concludes at Anekal town.
Once a silent locality in the distant corner of Bangalore, Bannerghatta Road has managed to attract a lot of people in the recent years. Major infrastructural development has made this locality a hub for several software companies, renowned educational institutions, hospitals, theatres, malls, residential complexes, and apartments. This has resulted in a real estate boom in the area.
Bannerghatta Road also houses the Bangalore campus of the prestigious Indian Institute of Management (IIMB), Christ University and Rajiv Gandhi College of Nursing. It also hosts a few world-renowned hospitals like Fortis Hospital and Apollo Hospital. Famous shopping malls include Gopalan Mall, Vega Mall, B.V. Sampath Mall and Royal Meenakshi Mall.
