Kondapur is a place on the outskirts of Hyderabad, few kms off Hi Teck city. Like most of the other places in India, here also a weekly bazaar is held on every Sunday and this post is to share with you some of the pics taken there.
To be honest there’s nothing special in this weekly bazaar. But since it is near to my place I visit once a while. There’re other places in city where similar markets can be found any day of the week.
Instead of posting a slideshow keeping individual images and giving them a caption… Hope you like them…

Tender coconut: One of the reasons I go here on Sunday is that coconut vendors load their cart with fresh tender coconuts. [How to select a good tender coconut?]
