Nagar is a good place to shop for a variety of things. From safety pins to exquisite jewellery, the place is choc-a-bloc with stores brimming with goods.


Ranganathan Street is a shopper's paradise for people belonging to all ages. Right from tiny tots, school goers, teens and the elderly Ranganathan Street has a lot to allure every visitor - Definitely, not a place for the touch-me-not types. The roadside flea market is much like any shopping street in many parts of the country - noisy, crowded and chaotic. Cotton salwars, churidars and kurtis can be picked for reasonable rates. Bargaining is common with most small stores. Small tailoring units provide you with stitched salwar sets; within an hour or two.

Interesting food to feast, juices to quench thirst, and shops selling sweets and savories are part of the array of shops in Ranganathan Street. The place is every crowded at all times during the year.


The crowd surges to extraordinary numbers during festival seasons. During the month of Aadi, most apparel stores offer irresistable sale and discount prices. The proximity to T. Nagar bus terminal as well as Mambalam railway station has made Ranganathan Street a preferred shopping area. Finding parking space for private vehicles can be dreadful and tiring; indeed impossible. In fact, trips to T-Nagar are best made in autos who can navigate through the milling crowds and get you to your shopping destination in good time. Petty crimes are common on Ranganathan Street. Jaywalk is not recommended and it helps to be on guard to ensure a fun-filled, satisfying shopping experience.
