Laad Bazaar

Laad Bazaar information

West of the Charminar, the crowded Laad Bazaar is the perfect place to get lost. It's known across the south as the place to get wedding saris, jewels, and bangles, but the sidewalks all around the monument also have everything from perfumes to kitchen implements to coconuts. Skilled wanderers may find the bird market, or the workshops where varakh (silver foil) is pounded out for use in sweets. This area is also the centre of India’s pearl trade. Some great deals can be had – if you know your stuff.
