Chimanlal Girdharlal Road, colloquially the C. G. Road, is a one of the major roads of Ahmedabad. It has been ranked as the costliest retail location in the city.[1]

It is named after Chimanlal Girdharlal, one of the major businessmen of the 1960s in India.

C.G. Road was redesigned in the 1990s, which turned the road into a major financial hub of Ahmedabad. In 2010, it was ranked in "Main Streets Across the World 2010" by real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield on 3rd position for its strongest growth in Asia Pacific region behind Linking Road, Mumbai & Central, Hong Kong with annual Rental Growth 18.2%.[1]

It starts at Mahalaxmi Crossroads and ends at Sardar Patel Stadium Crossroads, in turn connecting Paldi to Navrangpura.
