Every woman worth every single thread in her sari must visit Man Mandir Saree Shop in Khader Nawaz Khan Road Chennai.
For Designer saris in various price ranges, classy, sophisticated, exclusive, away from the crowd type sarees. Also has designer lehangas & not so great salwar suits.
More than anything else I love the feel of the store, and the sales guys seem to pick the right stuff for you. A whiff of fresh air from the usual Silk sari stores.
Check out the window & in store display- they bring it down every night and replace with a fresh lot next morning. And the best part is that like most other designer sari stores, they also offer free finishing- attaching falls etc- makes ones life a whole lot easier.
Oh, and I love the way the sari shop people wrap the sari round you and brings over the blouse piece over your shoulders to simulate the complete wearing experience.
