From Matrimony Store To Astrology Kiosk, 5 Unusual Things You’ll Find At Airports In India & Across The World 

What do you expect to find at an airport? The duty-free replete with the finest chocolates and treats, branded stores for shoppers, bookstores for bibliophiles and of course restaurants to grab a bite. But did you know that some airports across India and the world are home to unusual things, from a matrimony store to an astrology kiosk? Well, let’s take you through them.

Unusual Things At Airports

1. Matrimony Store

Recently, X user, @Aarsun came across an Elite Matrimony store at Chennai airport. This left her wondering that the airport neither has a medical nor a convenience store in case of an emergency but it instead has a matrimony store. One X user commented that perhaps this store targets passengers who have a 2-hour layover to help them find a life partner in that time. Well, if you were at Chennai airport, would you stop to check out the matrimony store? 

2. Astrology Kiosk
