While everyone agrees that it is a great place to shop, there are a few additional and generally overlooked aspects of Ranganathan Street that shoppers should keep in mind. a) First of all, if you are visiting this place first time, do not take your car out; parking space is at a huge premium, in fact, non-existent.

During festival season, it is impossible to set a foot in this lane. Many big shopping malls and showrooms are present here, esp garments, textiles and gold silver jewellery shops. Pongal rush is maddening, we almost got lost in the maze.

Shopping destination for women's with lots of silk saree shops and jewellery shops. Also food joints are there. One of the busiest streets in weekend.

Its true mostly cheap good sold on streets and even in shops. But one wishes really shopping quality products then straight Saravanna Stores and Pody's etc. like large and huge stores. I found goods at much cheaper price and long variety as well. Everything you can get there. Quality of products available at streets is not worth unlike we experience... More
