Mantri Square (Kannada: ಮಂತ್ರಿ ಸ್ಕ್ವೇರ್) is a shopping mall situated in the Malleswaram locality in Bangalore, Karnataka, India. Mantri Square is one of the biggest malls in the country.[3] [4]

Mall Facilities[edit]

Facilities at the Mantri Square mall are:[5]

  • Department stores such as Lifestyle, Shoppers Stop, Pantaloon, Reliance Trends and Marks & Spencer
  • An expansive hypermarket spread over 9,000 square feet
  • Six-screen INOX multiplex
  • Amoeba bowling alley and gaming centre
  • Food court and dining area spread over 100,000 square feet with 39 food and beverage outlets

It was announced in 2010 that Mantri Square would be connected by the Bangalore Metro with the rest of the city.[6]

Controversies[edit]

On 2 June 2011, Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), the civic authority managing the mall, demolished the compound wall and the ramp of Mantri Square on Sampige Road citing traffic congestion and widening of Sampige Road.[7][8]

On 16 Jan 2017, the mall was temporarily closed. Concurrently BBMP withdrew the mall's occupancy certificate following a scaffolding collapse which had injured 2 housekeeping staff.
