In this post, I’ll be covering my hometown i.e. Lucknow. I have always loved Lucknow for its Culture, Food, Traditions, Beauty & Hazratganj. Yes people, Hazratganj is one of the favorite destinations for Lucknowities. It is a busy shopping area, where most of the bazaars of Lucknow are located and is called the Park Avenue of Lucknow. It also houses shopping complexes, restaurants, hotels, theatres, offices and businesses. Hazratganj is small version of Connaught Place, New Delhi. Hazratganj is a major shopping area of the city. It houses showrooms and retail stores of almost all major consumer-goods manufacturers in India. From car-dealers to jewellery stores to antiques, one can shop for almost anything at Hazratganj. Hazratganj also has got many shops selling the famous Lucknow Chikan material. Gurjari, Handloom Emporium, and Gandhi Ashrams, are some of the major handicraft sellers. The British Council Library is also located in Hazratganj, near to Mayfair Cinema.
It has a term associated with it “Ganjing“, Ganjing is a term used to describe ambling in the wide lanes and by lanes of city’s ganj market.
