Secunderabad General Bazaar
Traditionally, people living in Secunderabad headed to the General Bazaar when there was a wedding in the family since this market is a haven for gold jewellery and clothing. Most of these jewellery shops are family-owned businesses, which have been around for as long as a century-and-a-half in some cases. Besides shops on the main road, there’s quite a bit to explore in the tiny bylanes here. Browse through colourful imitation jewellery and hair accessories sold on the street or pick out footwear at small-time shops. If you are not put off by the cramped spaces, there’s much to found in these dusty lanes. For instance, there are stores that sell party decorations at throwaway prices, slabs of chocolate for your dessert experiments or a whole store dedicated only to buttons.
