Where to Shop and What to Buy in Hyderabad

Most have been trained to be professional and accommodating at all times, and tourists frequently report how satisfied they were with their shopping experience in Hyderabad, thanks to the helpful and ever-smiling store attendants.

Brigade Road

This street actually comes at a crossroad to MG Road. You can pick up all kinds of electronic goods here from a walkman to a washing machine. You can also find the official handicrafts showroom of Tamil Nadu state known as Poomp Puhar on Brigade Road. The other Indian states also have their handicraft showrooms nearby on Residency Road. These include Gangotri from Uttar Pradesh, Mrignayani from Madhya Pradesh, Utkalika from Orissa, and Gujari from Gujrat.

All these showrooms showcase the art, crafts, textiles, pottery and any special handicrafts produced by the respective states – a nice place to go hunting for little treasures and decorative artifacts.

City Centre Mall

Nothing negative can be said about the City Centre Mall, really. The massive complex has four whole levels, all dedicated to housing a mind-boggling array of fashion brand names, restaurants and other internationally well known outlets. There is nothing tacky about the City Centre Mall although its name sounds pretty common for one of the coolest malls in the city of Hyderabad.

  • Opening Hours: 10:00 - 22:00
  • Location: City Center Mall, Level 0, Road # 1, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad


What sets the GVK One mall apart from the rest is its sheer size and vast retail potential. The mall is every bit as wonderful as it looks from the outside as well as the inside.

Constantly compared to the GVK One mall due to its similarity in size, shoppers in Hyderabad know that this is where the similarity ends. Inorbit Mall was carefully planned and designed to offer a shopping experience unlike any other.

Shoppers love the fact that there are plenty of seats under indoor trees and greenery that provide a brief respite from the heat and exhaustion.

Lad Bazaar

Historical records dictate that a concubine of the sixth Nizam of Hyderabad called Ladli Begum was the founder of the Lad Bazaar. Also occasionally known as Lord’s Bazaar, this street is a treasure trove for all things charming and quaint. From traditional footwear to fashion, accessories, household goods and trinkets, everything is virtually available in the stalls crammed into the streets of Lad Bazaar. However, pearls and jewellery are bestsellers in these parts and travelers have been known to ardently bargain for these items from early dawn to dusk at the Lad Bazaar.

  • Opening Hours: Morning till late
  • Location: Lad Bazaar, near Charminar

Mysore Saree Udyog

The south of India is known for its printed silk saris and plain silk saris with gold borders. The best place to get these in Bangalore is at the Mysore Sari Udyog. You will also find shops in the city market and the MG road area selling silk saris, but the quality of silk here is guaranteed top notch. It is a bit more expensive than the bargains you can pick up in city market, but they more than make up for it in quality.

Most silk needs to be dry cleaned and if you ask for thicker silk it can be hand-washed at home you will save on the dry cleaners bill in the long run. Some saris have an attached blouse piece while others will need you to pick a separate matching piece of cloth to make one.

  • Location: On the first floor of 294 Kamaraj Road, near Commercial Street, five minutes from the city centre by taxi.

The Bombay Store

Unknown to most first-time shoppers, The Bombay Store has been in existence for more than a 100 years! This century-old brand is not your typical run-of-the-mill general store - it stocks an astonishing array of home accessories and furniture, fashion items and other household goods gorgeously displayed upon shelves and pedestals. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, which is why very rarely do customers walk away feeling unsatisfied.
