It’s caused by your dropdown menu – they are too long.

You really should fix it not for the white space’s sake, but the usability. A dropdown menu like you have now that require scrolling is the worst usable site one could experience, it may be just the only issue your site has, but just this alone, it can kill the rest of the effort you made for your site.

Possible fix:
1. WIder the width of second level, so that each category item uses one line only, this may not solve the problem because you simply have too many categories in a parent category.

2. Make it to the so called mega-menu by making the width much wider, then float the LI to make two categories items stay in one line.

3. Re-work your categories structure.

Hi

I am very much thankful to you. Yes, i was thinking that navigation only the reason.

I made some changes to it as per your suggestion. But couldn’t able to delete any of the menu items, since the pages already updated in search engines.

Thanks for your great help. Please look into the site and suggest me if any.

Best Regards
