From crockery from the time of the Nizams to quaint chandeliers that might not be original but replicas made to look like the original pieces, wooden chests, ornate mirrors, picture frames—there might be quite a few surprises’ to be found at the antique shops in the Charminar area close to Murgi Chowk. Every item in a shop supposedly has a history, though the authenticity of the shopkeepers’ stories should be taken with a pinch of salt. We found one of these shopkeepers trying to sell us what were supposedly the original pictures from the Boston Tea Party. There used to be many more antique shops here earlier but now only a handful remain. Apart from buying antiques, you could also sell something from your collection here.
