“Overcrowded & overrated”

T Nagar, Ranganathan Street
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Highly overrated area; same stuff can be got elsewhere in the city, in better comfort. It is not worth the effort to push through the crowds here, just to save a few rupees.

You name any article to buy and you will get it in Ranganathan Street. Very busy area particularly in the evenings and during festival times. Good place to shop.

From A to Z, you get everything in Ranganathan Street. The smaller shops and the ones located on the platforms hike the prices incredibly. You may need to bargain a lot and check your purchase well before buying. If the shopkeeper quotes Rs. 200, then start at Rs.60 and you may end up with a good bargain.

The place can get extremely crowded during holiday and festivals and is a hot spot for pick pockets. Parking is scarce and you may have to park a good distance away from the main shopping area.

Apart from the road side vendors, there are big shops like Saravana Stores, RmKV, Jayachandran, India Textiles as well. The prices are fixed at these shops.

Enjoy shopping at Ranganathan Street!

The roadside shops charge cheaper but the quality of the goods is bad.It will never give you a good shopping experience but it is wallet friendly.
