Quality and variety of products are good as it is govt shop. But a little expensive. Worth visiting for the variety, if you like it you may end up buying it.

Do visit this place - don't be fooled by Sagarekha (note the spelling diff) - for genuine and reasonably priced goodies. If you intend to carry back souvenirs for yourself and others, this is the place. It has products of all ranges.

Please be very careful as several tour guides and auto drivers will knowingly take you to Sagarekha, instead of the actual Sagarika. Sagarekha is twice as costly (because they need to pay incentives to tour guides and auto drives) to fool tourists to come to...More

It is a government run shop. It is a must visit to purchase souvenirs and offers a lot of variety. You need to carry cash as it does not have card swiping facility. The prices are reasonable.
