    HYDERABAD: The night bazaar at Shilparamam — Shilpa Sandhya Vedika — one of its kind tourism project in the State, is likely to be thrown open to public in time for Sankranti next year.

    Coming up at a cost of Rs. 10.50 crores on a three-acre site, the night bazaar will have five themes — Stone Age, Vedic Age, Dravya (materialistic world), Sultanate, and Adhunic (modern) — and is envisaged to provide a staggering 60,000 sq ft of shopping space with 250 shops and 1.6 lakh sq ft of landscaped garden area.

    "Construction is on at a healthy pace and given the enormity of the project, the bazaar is likely to be thrown open for general public by January 8 next year," said Special Officer (Shilparamam) G. Janardhan Reddy.

    Officials here point out that the night bazaar would go a long way in catering to the needs of tourists on a brief visit to the twin cities and for visitors in transit who have a night halt. "We are also hoping that the concept will appeal to the 1.5-lakh strong IT workforce working during nights at Hi-Tech city and nearby areas," he said.

    "There are several night bazaars in the country but this one is unique because of its five different themes. It will run from 3 p.m. to 3 a.m., which is ideal for large number IT professionals working at Hi-tech city," he said.

    Food courts

    The facility would also have five food courts serving a variety of cuisines in five different themes, stalls for exhibition-cum-sale of crafts and handlooms and cellar parking to accommodate 450 cars .

    G.V.P.R Engineers have taken up the construction work while Delhi-based Lakhanpal Associates have been recruited to conceptualise the five themes, give architectural designs and inputs.
