Read on as we explore the best things to do, eat, and buy on a visit to this amazing market. Check out our comprehensive guide to Mozamjahi Market, Hyderabad.

Throughout history, science and its application has always led to amazement and wonder. It is the same case with the creation of this expression of technical and artistic mastery. The Floating Rock is a more recent addition to the many things that Mozamjahi Market is famous for. It is made of fiberglass and has steel pipes for support.

Although the work of art is around the same size as a person, it is noticeable enough and provides a landmark for friends or family meeting up in the area. It’s also a quaint gesture and piece to admire while waiting during Hyderabad’s busy rush hour.

Parts of Mozamjahi Market are undergoing significant renovations, and it is estimated that the market will not only have a restored look but it will also become a major tourist landmark in the state. Following are the things to do at this amazing market:

Admire the architecture

Keep an eye out for the market architecture, as it dates back to 1935. Check out the clock facing the main market crossing, the granite stone, the arches, and the spiral staircase that leads to the terrace. Once the renovation is over, the stone structure, including the white dome, will be restored to its original grandeur.

Watch the pigeon spectacle

The first thing that you’ll most likely see when entering the market yard are the flocks of pigeons. Many people feed them grains, so they come in larger and larger numbers, offering visitors quite the spectacle.

Enjoy the family-friendly destination

After its restoration, Mozamjahi Market is expected to become a family-friendly attraction for locals and tourists alike. It is set to turn into a place with lots of eateries and outdoor seating, so families can enjoy a wholesome shopping and dining experience.

Famous Ice Cream

Hyderabad offers plenty of fine cuisines and street foods. One place to visit in this market is the Famous Ice Cream, an ice cream shop that is one of the mainstays of Mozamjahi market. It is famous for its handmade ice cream that is available in many classic and seasonal flavors. The shop has outdoor seating, so you can sit down, relax, and enjoy a delicious scoop of ice cream while being a spectator to the buzz and visitor traffic around you. We recommend you try some of their special flavors, like lychee and falooda. The ice cream would also go well with the many fruits available at Mozamjahi Market.

Karachi Bakery

Although you can fill yourself up if you’re staying at a hotel with buffets, you should make some room in your stomach for your market trip. Karachi Bakery should be another popular stop on your visit to the market. The well-known bakery is famous for its plum cake and fruit biscuits, as well as dilkush, a popular Indian pastry that is much-loved by kids and adults alike.

Fresh fruit and veggies

Since India is one of the largest fruit and vegetable producers in the world, the first thing you’ll notice when visiting Mozamjahi Market is local vendors selling fresh fruits and vegetables. We recommend you buy some local produce, including okra, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, bananas, papaya, and mangoes. India is home to lots of exotic fruits that are worth tasting, so don’t miss the chance to try them out. Look for Buddha’s hand (fingered citron), mangustaan (mangosteen), and ambarella (Indian hog plum).


Don’t leave the market before checking out the plethora of pottery items sold by local vendors. Whether you’re looking for souvenirs to take home or interested in learning more about famous things in Hyderabad like Indian arts and crafts, Mozamjahi Market is an excellent starting point.

Timing your visit to Mozamjahi Market is a bit tricky. Though the place is wheelchair accessible, in some areas, you may need to climb one or two steps. Also, expect the market to be buzzing with people, so moving around with a wheelchair might get a bit complicated in such a crowded space.

Best time to visit

Once the renovation of the market is completed, it is expected the Mozamjahi Market will become one of the major landmarks and tourist attractions in the city. As it happens with any place that becomes a major landmark, the market will have more vendors, but it will also get more crowded, and the prices might see an increase. If you want to skip the crowds and explore the market before the buzz, plan your visit at offpeak times, like in the summer months.
