A major shopping complex of Lucknow, Hazratganj Market is situated in Parivartan Chowk area of Hazratganj in the centre of the city. Built by Amjad Ali Shah in 1810, the market was earlier located on Queens Way on which the British used to drive their carriages.
With the passage of time, it has made forays into the narrow winding streets of the city. A beautification drive launched in 2010-11 has ensured the installation of bright lights, fountains and benches that have given the road a Victorian era ambience. Hazratganj market comprises bazaars, shopping malls, classy showrooms, hotels, PVR film theatres, Fun Cinemas, restaurants, food courts and offices.
Name anything and you can get it here including the latest cars, jewellery, antiques, handicraft items and above all, the famed Lucknow Chikan material. The market is home to several brand names in consumer products including Big Bazaar Superstore, Gurjari Handloom Emporium, Gandhi Ashrams selling handicraft items and the five storey Sahara Ganj Mall sprawling more than 425,000 sq ft area.
