Ten-Second Takeaway

MG Road

Want a oval-shaped hanging lantern? Head to MG Road and pick a piece of your choice. The bird-caged lanterns in shades of green and blue look quite authentic and neat. The price ranges from INR 150 to INR 350 a piece, depending on the size you pick.

Laxmi Road

You don’t always need an occassion to light up your home with pretty-looking star-shaped, foral and spherical kandils from Laxmi Road for INR 200. Check out the vibrant kandils in the shape of a diya or a chakra. These pieces will cost you a little more but will light up the balcony like never before!

Tapkir Galli

Tapkir Galli in Budhwar Peth is a narrow lane crowded by shops on both sides. Known as the Electric Market of Pune, this place has some great collection of fairy lights either in multiple hues or quintessential warm yellow. Since the shopkeepers sell everything at a wholesale rate, the treasures are a steal.

Juna Bazaar

Known for artefacts, home decor and second-hand fashion, Juna Bazaar can be of great help if you’re planning to revamp the house with some authentic pieces of lighting decor. The brass diyas and the hanging lamps are major hits. Don’t forget to bargain and get a decent deal!


Kumbharwada is the colony of potters in Kasba Peth. The place, clustered and unplanned, sells everything that is made out of earth and clay. The traditional handcrafted lamps and lanterns are the best things Kumbharwada. They come in all shapes, designs and sizes and cost between INR 30 and INR 400. If you love unconventional yet basic earthy decor, this is the place to be!
