Jayanagar Shopping Complex & Market
The shopping complex in Jayanagar has all the positive vibes. It is a good place to shop and roam about. Even on the weekdays the shopping complex and the market are very crowded. All of your everyday needs may be found here.
Shopping complex and market includes a lot of shopping options for women. It’s like a daily market, affordable and nice. Jayanagar shopping complex is like heaven for women shoppers. You can get anything these days, anywhere , but 4th block has its own originality, such as Bangkok bags, women’s tees, leggings, footwear, and dupattas, household items , vegetables, festive collections at affordable costs. Always make sure to carry a bag for hassle free shopping. While you shop, enjoy some street food as well. You should have some bargaining skills, because the initial price they provide you is not at all reasonable. The Jayanagar market has a lot of organic shops, homemade snacks shops and alot of shops that serve homely food items and snacks. The book shops, the organic butter shop and the grandhige angadi are all quite popular in the Jayanagar shopping complex.
Saturdays and Sundays are very busy and products available are low-cost but high in quality. The shopping complex is extremely large, featuring a variety of shops. It takes 2 minutes to walk from the bus station. I’ve been visiting the Jayanagar 4th block for years. But the recent development and the new building is not very appreciated by the local people. The Jayanagar shopping complex has lost its authenticity. People who loved the charm of old Bengaluru have not welcomed the change heartily.
If you are in Bengaluru or if you have not visited the shopping complex and market in recent times, do make a visit and enjoy the colorful vibes.
