Lamington Road

A view of Lamington Road

Lamington Road, officially Dr. Dadasaheb Bhadkamkar Marg, named after Lord Lamington, the Governor of Bombay between 1903 and 1907, is a busy thoroughfare near Grant Road station in South Mumbai. The official name of the road is rarely used. It is often called the "IT hub of Mumbai".[1]

Lamington Road is famous for its wholesale and retail market[2] in electronics goods. Shops on the street sell computer goods, electronic items, television equipment, and wireless equipment at rates much lower than the maximum retail price as they have a high turnover.[3] Not only the latest computer related items but even outdated electronic parts for radios like transistors, capacitors, cables, sound cards, TV tuners and adaptors can be bought from this market.[4]

It is the address of famous theatres such as the Minerva, Apsara, and Novelty as well as some B and C grade theatres such as the Naaz. It also has a well known Saibaba temple called as "Saidham". Schools such as DGT High School (Marathi medium), Queen Mary (ICSE) and Robert Money School (SSC) & Junior college. The southern end of the road ends at Opera House.Near the Marine Drive
