Mozamjahi Market is very famous for the fruit market which is located in the heart of the city, Hyderabad. During the ruling of last Nizam, Mir Osman Ali Khan in 1935, it was constructed and was named after his second son Moazzam Jah. In the 1980s the fruit market was shifted to Kothapet Fruit Market. The structure is triangular.

If you are a visitor to Hyderabad, you might like to spend some time here. You will not regret it. 

These pictures are taken during several visits to this place. I organise Photowalks in Hyderabad for groups and for individuals. If you are on a short visit, I can show you the best of what Hyderabad has to offer.

In 1935, a clock was installed on the minar facing the main market crossing. Granite stone was used for this historic structure and jack arches style was done on the roof. For more than 80 years the market is in use. The terrace of it is accessible by the spiral staircases on two sides of the structure. 

This place has transformed due to the Hyderabd Metro Rail project. It looks very different now. You cannot get a clear sky in the background. Some of the pictures shot here are before the metro work started. 

Fortunately, this building got a facelift recently. It brings relief when some bureaucrat  

The shops here sell fruits, vegetables, dry fruits, meat, ice cream, pottery perfumes. The Famous Ice Cream shop is favorite of the Hyderabadis. Another attraction to the place is the Karachi Bakery which is another landmark in the area. If you are a visitor to Hyderabad, you must taste and carry a few packs of the cookies they have.

A variety of fruits are available throughout the year. It is also famous for its wholesale market for grain and other businesses. Jambagh, known for the flower market was once part of this market.

There is also a traditional perfume (Ittar) shop in this complex.
