Shilparamam, the ethnic hamlet of Andhra Pradesh is also preparing for a host of cultural events and craft shows to mark the beginning of the New Year. About twenty-five kilometers away from Hyderabad, Shilparamam is a scenic crafts village at Madhapur. Spanning an area of over fifty acres of land Shilparamam hosts many fairs and fests on special occasions round the year.
The chief purpose is to highlight the rich artistic and cultural tradition that India treasures. The village turns into a vibrant wonderland with its arts and crafts exhibits on the eve of Ugadi. Foreigners taking a tour to Hyderabad during this time do not miss to turn up to Shilparamam and experience the marvelous handicrafts culled from the remote corners of India.
