Definition

A prominent building, shop, office, crossroad which is used as a reference point while telling or asking for directions.
Street names and house numbers don't work so much in India. Even if one can read, finding a properly marked road itself is difficult. If there not a landmark mentioned one can go around the destination for hours and not find it.

Usage

Saab 17 MG Road.
Where on MG Road?
17 MG Road.
No landmark?
Near Dena Bank.
Ohh that! Go straight take first left.
