It is calm with enough light and ventilation (no a/c). Mostly clean, but some old books on top shelves inside gathered dust waiting for a buyer (the store is in ‘L’ shape).

11 Parking Only Convenient for TWO wheelers. That too for small number of vehicles. It’s difficult for four wheelers parking.
12 Timings Open seven days a week from 8 am to 10 pm.
13 Other Observations Most books are separated as only fiction and non-fiction. Therefore, if you are searching for a specific category in non-fiction section- you should be patient to find, as those are not well categorized. They also have a good collection of old editions of popular foreign magazines such as Harvard Business Review that are priceless.
