Shopping in Delhi

Shopper’s Paradise! Where do you start? Shopping in Delhi is all either all about splurging at various high-end markets or striking a good bargain at the famous street markets, so just indulge!

The main shopping markets in Delhi are concentrated in and around Connaught Place, Palika Bazaar, the underground air-conditioned market in CP and Janpath. More traditional markets are in the Chandni Chowk area of Old Delhi and in Karol Bagh. With the expansion of the city, other shopping complexes, including the chic Hauz Khas village, Santushti complex, the South Extension market and Khan Market have been developed. For handlooms and handicrafts from all states of India, visit the state emporia on Baba Kharak Singh Marg and the Central Cottage Industries Emporium off Connaught Place. Antiques and art are sold at the Tibetan Market on Janpath and some shops in Sundar Nagar Market.

Delhi’s first look at big time shopping malls happened when Ansal’s Plaza opened in South Delhi with cafés, shops, boutiques and show rooms selling the best of Indian products and international brands under one roof. Today Delhi and the surrounding NCR area is overflowing with glitzy malls where footfalls are increasing by leap folds, with the Select City Walk Mall at Saket leading the pack.

For inexpensive cotton clothing, try the Tibetan Market on Janpath and Sarojini Nagar Market. Some exclusive boutiques sell designer outfits in up-markets like Greater Kailash, Vasant Vihar, Hauz Khas village, the Santushti complex and Khan Market. A craftsmen’s co-operative Dastkar at Hauz Khas village, the Crafts Museum near Pragati Maidan and stalls in Dilli Haat sell rural craft including terracotta pots, metalware, leather products, fabrics, and hand-woven saris.
