Magneto - The Mall

Reviewed By Sushma_KS - New Delhi, India

I used to visit this mall for the subway and the big bazaar. It has lots of young crowd coming in for movies and also the social life with bar and Movie theatre in this complex. Being on outskirts also means easy parking space but crowded in weekend. Descent choices for shopping.

Ambuja City Center Mall

Reviewed By Prasobh U

It's a really good mall for its size, collections and decor but it's just too far from the city. For people who like a drive on their week offs, can surely visit but otherwise those who have no means of conveyance, stick to a mall nearby.

Shahid Veer Narayan Singh International Cricket Stadium

Reviewed By MARGDARSHI - New Delhi India

This Stadium is located in Naya Raipur built in the memory of freedom fighter Veer Narayan Singh of the 1857 war fame.It is the fourth largest stadium in the world with a capacity to seat more than 50000/people at a time.The Seating arrangements are good but there are no hotels or other arrangements close by.
Even though it is called an international stadium no such matches have taken place since its inauguration in 2008.Only some IPL cricket matches have been held.You have to make your own transport arrangements to reach the place as it is away from the heart of the city.

Chhattisgarh City Center Mall

Reviewed By lifeisajourney_13 - Korba

One of the best places in Raipur for Shopping, having some food and watching movies.
One can find a variety of stores for purchasing Cloths, Shoes, Bags and what not.
There are Big Bazar and Central in this mall where you can spend hours and thousands for purchasing lots of stuff.
The food court is located at the 2nd level and 1 multiplex is there for enjoying movies.
The Location of this mall is the USP i.e 5 minutes from the Bus Stand, 15 minutes from The Railway Station and approx 45 minutes from the Airport.
And another advantage is that this mall is located at Pandari Market, if you don't like or don't want to spend money inside the mall there is plenty of options outside the mall where you can purchase Cloths, Shoes, and what not.
Also, there are lots of food options outside the mall where you can enjoy Veg/Non-Veg foods.

Remember to take your bathing costumes in order to enjoy this to the fullest. Also try to avoid visiting this place during constant rains as the road may be blocked due to water overflowing during that time.

Shri Rajiv Lochan Mandir

Reviewed By Karthik R - Chennai (Madras), India

Shri Rajiv Lochan Mandir is located in Rajim Rajim is 55 kms from Raipur. Important places to see here are Triveni Sangam and Rajivlochan temple. The temple is situated by the banks of Triveni Sangam. Three rivers merge here and is very popular locally. Rajim Triveni Sangam is by rivers - Mahanadi, Pairi and Sondur. There are small temples all around for local rituals. Rajivlochan temple is a group of temples with beautiful rock carvings dedicated for Lord Vishnu. The temple looks to be renovated with brick work few years later. The sculptures are quite intricate with most of them resembling naga based. The temple hosts sculptures of various avatars of Lord Vishnu. We spent around 20 minutes in this temple.
