INDIAN MALL

It is a very typical mall the only difference is that you can bargain to a degree there is very little that distinguishes it as indian other than the external structure

Unfortunately this centre is stuck in the past. It suffers from displaying it's prices honestly! On the interest of time you can get your product under less complicated circumstances elsewhere. Off my shopping radar!

Before the advent of China mall and shopping centre, the Oriental Plaza was a great shopping destination now it isn't the best bargain hunters paradise and has lost its Indian charm. Very quiet and shops sell very similar items.

This is the place to go to for budget shopping of unbranded stuff. You could buy bags, purses, luggage, clothes, accessories, electronics, etc.
