Top 10 Biggest/Largest Shopping Malls of India

Updated on June 4, 2017
kannanwrites profile image

Kannan loves to travel and explore new places. Be it in his home city Mumbai or faraway places. He believes in travelling on a budget.

Over the years, the number of malls in India has grown rapidly. Post 2005 many new malls have started all over India. So much so that Indian metros are on a verge of a saturation point as far as shopping malls are concerned.

As you read, construction of many malls across India are on a full-swing. Of late, the focus has shifted from the metros and businesses are now looking at tier-2 and tier-3 cities. Cities like Gurgaon, Kochi, and Varanasi are looking very promising. With DLF supposedly building the largest shopping complex of the World in Gurgoan. 'Mall of India' in Gurgoan will have a floor area of 4,500,000 when completed.

The recently opened Lulu mall at Cochin in Kerala makes many other malls like smaller brothers to it. Second to it comes Phoenix Market City, Kurla in Mumbai. Bangalore also has a mention in the list; with few and far mentions of some other metro cities.

      @Gaurav Maru You are right. Actually what you read is the total built-up area of the mall which also includes the parking space (1.35 million sq. ft) and other miscellaneous area. The total shopping (leasable) area of is approximately 2.1 million square foot.

      I hope you got the point. Thanks for your comment.

      I stay near Phoenix Market City, Kurla, Mumbai. A poster outside the mall says total area to be 45 lakh sq ft. And you have mentioned it as 20lakh sq ft.

      Which is correct?
