The urban jungle of Cyberabad also nestles Shilparamam which is a cultural crafts village. This rural set-up was introduced in 1992 with an aim to conserve the traditional crafts of India. And, it continues to successfully do so by showcasing a plethora of rustic arts and artefacts. Apart from boating in the lake, and visiting the rock museum amidst the lush landscapes — shopping is a given here.
Walking along the alleys between stores, you will notice how different flavours of India blend together. We spent some time in Shilparamam, and apart from all the jewellery, woodwork, and clothes — we found some furniture to add an old-school charm to our house. Mind you, you will really have to look because a lot of furniture pieces here are plain tacky, but we did find some gems and at reasonable prices too.
