There’s nothing better that depicts Indian culture and tradition than handicrafts. The colourful patterns, floral designs and shiny glass work looks best on pots, curios and other decorative items and are souvenirs that you’d love to take back home from Delhi.
Here are a few venues that are well-known for their vast collection of handicrafts and souvenirs.
- Dilli Haat:
Located in South Delhi, this open market is visited by every tourist in town for its array of handicrafts. From vibrant earthen pots to elegantly carved wooden sculptures the market is sure to put your imagination to the test. There are also a few food stalls around that serve some palatable street food.
- Central Cottage Industries Emporium:
With branches throughout India and solid expertise in the handicrafts field, this emporium is one of the oldest stores that sells traditional art and craft. You’re likely to find a more conventional take on craft here as everything is designed aesthetically with minimal experimentation.
- Janpath Market, Connaught Place
Located on the Outer Circle of Connaught Place, this market has several shops that were established before independence. You will find plenty of handicrafts that follow age old classical designs. Some stores also showcase a few heavily priced artefacts that are museum material. A must-visit, especially if you’re into vintage collectibles and memorabilia.
