I have to create a website which will display (Front end) products with multiple images(large image with zoom effect). All products will be inserted from the admin panel according to categories and sub-categories. 

how can I do the above features.?

I'll assume you know how to create a Product content type and how to define taxonomies and attach taxonomy fields. As for assigning multiple images to a Product, one way you could approach this is by defining an Image content type which has a MediaPickerField. Then you attach a ContentPickerField to the ProductPart and configure it so that you can attach multiple content items (which can be the Image content items).

Simpler: use one of the gallery modules. I use my own Zen gallery on my business' site: http://nwazet.com/prokit for example. The gallery can be found here: http://gallery.orchardproject.net/List/Modules/Orchard.Module.Nwazet.ZenGallery
