Those who have heard of Gurgaon or even been to Gurgaon must know what we are talking about when we say that it is unofficially the 'The Mall Capital of India'. One could go so far as to say that Gurgaon's spurt of growth has largely been a result of the large number of Malls and shopping complexes that are flourishing in the City. At the other end of the spectrum one could also point out that the frenetic growth of the City has contributed to the flourishing of the Malls and Shopping Centers.

The Emergence of the Shopping Malls

The history of the Shopping Malls in Gurgaon begins with the first Malls being established on M.G. Road. The DLF City Center Mall was the first off the blocks followed by the MGF Metropolitan Mall and the Sahara Mall. Since, then many such Malls have come up all over Gurgaon and new ones are being added to the list on a regular basis. One such Mall is the Ambi Mall which is reputed to be the largest Mall in India and the South of Asia and what's more it is said to the be the 7th largest Mall in Asia.

Specialty and High End Customers

These days there are a host specialty Malls making their appearance in Gurgaon. The Wedding Mall, which opened its doors in 2007, as the name suggests, only houses the entire range of wedding goods and accessories. Moreover, the Gold Souk is a shopping Mall dedicated to gold. . Another facet of shopping Malls in Gurgaon is the fact that most of these Malls cater to the high-end consumers. Many of them are exclusively dedicated to some of the big names in world fashion like Versace, Armani, Chanel, and Boss amongst numerous others.

Multi-Function Malls

The Malls and shopping centers in Gurgaon not only stock a wide array of products but also house a collection of facilities and activities that convert a simple shopping Mall into an all round entertainment hub. So, your shopping Mall has a collection of fine dining restaurants, fast food outlets, movie theatres, gaming hubs and a variety of other facilities and amenities that will help you spend a great day shopping. So, in effect what you will be undertaking is not a shopping outing but a whole new shopping experience.

To be fair, the Malls that can be found in Gurgaon have cropped up in most of the cities in India, however, the Malls and shopping complexes in Gurgaon can be effectively called trend-setters and pioneers when it comes to the products, facilities, and services offered.
