The Hyderabad Playlist : Visit to Shilparamam
We decided to take a bit of break on a certain Sunday and visit Shilparamam- the traditional handicraft village situated in Hi-tech city. The entry fee was 40/- rupees for adults. It has a Cultural Crafts Museum, Art Gallery and Library, and a multipurpose auditorium. Shilparamam is a perfect place for art lovers, and people who seek a quiet time to admire art and culture.
|Love those lanterns.|
|Boating!! Yeah!! Look at that bridge!!|
There were many ladies sitting near the entrance with Mehendi cones doing Arabic designs. And in the other end near the food courts, under a big banyan tree there sat many sketch artists who did portraits for different rates. I watched them in action. It was great. I so wanted to have a portrait made for myself, but didn’t have much money with me. The rates started from 500/- and went till 1500/- ruppees.
We did boat ride, it was such a great experience. We pedaled and navigated the boat around ourselves. We went near the bougainvilleas near the stony edges of the waters, went under the bridge, hit the fellow boats in front of us in frenzy and clicked a lot many pics. It was so much fun.
