Nature Park, Shilparamam

Shilparamam of Hyderabad is a multifaceted place for relaxation. The place is truly a wonder, thanks to the people who came up with this idea. Once you get into Shilparama you can spend endless hours window shopping, buy a cartload of stuff, eat, do boating, ride a giant wheel, see paintings, read at a library, ladies can get Henna art, ride a bullock cart, wonder at living rocks at  Prakriti Raga, swing with joy at sand garden, get yourself pencil sketched, see frozen rural sights, take a relaxing walk in Nature Park, or simply laze around. Shilparama is open between 11 and 9-30. Well, the village doesn't sleep early. There's Night Bazar if you want to stretch your evening... you can buy garments, try our Mughlai food, and even buy home made chocolates.

During my fourth trip to Shilparamam, I happened to pass by Nature Park entrance and got pulled in. The park's theme is little confusing to me. However, with all due respect to its creators, the park is indeed unique. Its a display of scrap-metal art. Its amazing to some of the creations.. I'll let the pictures take over.

There are many more interesting sculptures of a chopper, peacocks, cubes.. Also there's one stone sculpture of a zipper. And close to Gulliver are twin rocks connected by a bridge, that's the highest point of Nature Park. The park has lot of place to move around plus places to sit. It's a nice place to relax.
