Pune Shopping

Tulsi Baug is a noisy and unorganized market area with temporary stalls and lined shops. But here, tourists can get household items; jewellery, Maharashtrians traditional wares, pearl nose ring, necklace and the nine-yard sarees from this busy market.

Chhatrapati Sambhaji Nagar (Deccan Gymkhana) is so small market place on the other side of the river Mutha that one can easily cover within 15 minutes. This area has full of shops for fruit, leather items, gifts, food, shoes, and furniture. There is a lane called Hong Kong lane that sells trinkets, cosmetic jewellery, cassettes and flowers. Sweetshops of this marketplace are famous for its sweet pedas, barfis and amrakhanda as well as spicy bhakar wadis and saurali wadis.

Juna Bazaar or Old Market is a place for accessories like necklaces, screwdrivers and door hinges. Antique coins are casually sold here. Even many of the denizens of Pune are unaware of this, but foreigners and amateur coin collectors are familiar with this street. Worn out trousers, old silk saris and even second hand floppies are available here. Juna Bazaar runs every Wednesday and Sunday on a part of the Vir Santaji Ghorpade Path, near Maldhaka Chowk.

Laxmi Road is mainly famous for its garment shops for all weathers and its purses. It is said that a visit to Pune is incomplete if you have not visited Laxmi Road once. This place too is a very busy and noisy place. The market road is nearly 4 km long. It starts from the Alka Talkies Square and runs right through the old city terminating at the Cantonment area. Laxmi Road is not opened on Mondays and in the afternoons.

Mahatma Gandhi Road is a place with big stores. There are also temporary road stalls mostly selling garments along these big stores. If visitors feel hungry, there are also plenty of food stalls and ice cream parlours on this road as well as in nearby areas. Mahatma Gandhi Road, like Laxmi Road is also one way. This place is favourite for evening hangouts. It is closed on Sundays and in the afternoons.
