Shilparamam is an arts and crafts village situated at Madhapur just after passing the Jubilee Hills in Hyderabad. This 30-acre village has on display art samples and specimens of handicrafts from all over the country. To motivate artists and craftsmen, give them recognition and inspire them to greater aesthetic creativity and productivity, this crafts village organizes annual bazaars, where artists and artisans hailing from all parts of the country showcase their talent. Shilparamam helps serve as a melting pot of diverse cultures, a meeting ground of traditions and a sincere effort to conserve, sustain, popularize and propagate art forms which would otherwise have faced oblivion. The topography of the land merges lush green stretches with typical Hyderabad rock structures and wanders through plains, small hills and mini- valleys into a beautiful area that helps arouse a sense of rustic and rich rural beauty. Prospective customers and connoisseurs may come and collect specimens of art directly from the artisans themselves without the hassle and inconvenience of handling middlemen.
In its complete form, Shilparamam will soon boast of the following features :
• Crafts Museum
• Cultural Museum
• Art Gallery and Library
• Multi-purpose Auditorium
• Common Facility Workshops
• Research and Design Center
• Dormitory and Rest Houses (to house participating or visiting guests and artists)
Shilparamam is located approximately 25 kilometers from Hyderabad railway station and 31 kilometers away from Hyderabad bus station. Situated at Madhapur, it may easily be reached by road. Shilparamam is one of the most important and well known popular tourist destinations in Hyderabad.
