Shilparamam (Madhapur Hyderabad)


Shilparaamam is a village like environment cum good relaxation centre next to Cyber tower, Hitech City, Hyderabad.

Shilparaamam contains following:

Shopping section-Handicrafts, Dress materials and other village made products are sold here at below market price. Mysore Sales International Limited (MSIL) has a permanent stall here which sells several items ranging from Mysore Sandal soap to pure sandalwood dining table worth several lakh rupees.

You'll also find food stalls, artists specializing in Mehandi, drawing etc.

Amphitheater: Lot of cultural activities keep happening here during weekends.

Lake: Small lake with boating facility (2 and 4 seaters, self peddle)

Rock Garden: Natural rocks which represent various shapes-such as lord Ganesha, fish, frog, mother feeding a baby etc are on display

Heritage Village-You can see villagers (clay made models) in action-blacksmith, potter, etc.

The village environment and scenery are carefully replicated here

Needless to say there’re lots of trees and shadow and a nice environment to spend time in peace. Entry fee: Rs 10, Boating: Rs 10 extra. Worth it. Wish they could give me a monthly pass…

Don’t forget to spend some time at this place when you come to Hyderabad.
This place is at a walkable distance from my office (as well as home).



Aug 2007 Updates:Shilparamam is currently undergoing renovation and is not all that convenient to visit at this moment.

Other places around Hyderabad: Anantagiri Hills | Durgam Cheruvu |Golconda Fort| Ramoji Film City |
