about laad bazaar

One of the oldest markets of Hyderabad, Laad Bazaar (also known as Choodi Bazaar) is on one of the four roads branching off from the Charminar. The word 'laad' means lacquer, a material from which bangles are made. The lacquers are often studded with gems or other embellishments to produce the final ornate product. The history of the market goes as far back as the days of the Nizams.

As the name suggests, it is mainly popular for bangles, but you can also find artificial jewellery, silverware, saris, Kalamkari paintings, antiques, traditional Khara dupattas, spices, brocaded fabrics, perfumes, etc. Phew! The narrow alley of the market is always crowded, with shopkeepers calling out to potential customers. This is one of the must do activity when you are in Hyderabad. If you decide to come here, you'd better polish up on your bargaining skill!
