S -for Shilparamam

Shilparaman is conceived with an idea to create an environment for the preservation of traditional crafts.  It is an arts and crafts village located in Madhapur, Hyderabad, Telengana, India.

Shilparaman is an interesting place which I visited with my daughter and my friend with her daughter as we were looking for a place to take our children. 

This place is beautifully decorated with arts and crafts and also has rural village set up as a model. The rural museum is surrounded by trees, and authentically constructed out of baked clay and thatch; depict rural and tribal lifestyles and the life of various artisans.

We went by noon and we did not find much time to see everything, we left out on the rock garden which is like a rock measum.  

There is a beautiful lake that offers rowing and paddle boats, and then there is a recreational area surrounded by sculptures. We could not go for boating, as it was very sunny and my daughter was getting tired walking around, the whole place is spread around 65 acres

We hired a battery vehicle to just glance through and cover the total area. We liked the shopping place, and picked up a few tops for my daughter. 

The day was tiring, but also enjoyable; and I was happy that I could take my daughter to this place. Living in Hyderabad city, its worth visiting specially for children who do not experience rural life style.

This place is also very busy place, which always hosting some painting exhibitions, Art and craft, musical evenings and a lot of people hire this place for various kinds of celebrations. There is an entry ticket for adults and children.

We had a great time walking around, plenty of things to eat, there is a whole block made for the snacks, cool drinks, tea/coffee and also a whole lot of south Indian and North Indian foods including the bakery items.

My daughter and my friend’s daughter had a great time taking pictures; enjoying the snacks and playing in the recreation area. I am glad for having been to this place and giving my daughter a rural  life experience.

It isn't the great big pleasures that count the most; its making a great deal out of the little one’s.  Jean Webster.
Be Happy!


  1. Lovely post Genevive thank you. It's so important to get out from the city from time to time and enjoy our cultural heritage with all thanks to those who preserve it. This ensures that we don't lose touch with our heritage and the beauty that it offers. I live the names too that you mention in your posts of India .. they sort of roll around on my tongue in a most pleasant way. :)

Thanks Susan,glad to hear from you and I am happy to be visiting these places while I am still young and able to walk; my daughter says I must take her everywhere now only, as she fears after some years I will grow I am taking it as a challenge to create beautiful moments and memories for her. I am amused to know that some of names is pleasant to roll around your tongue.. thanks again .. its my pleasure to interact with you.
