  • One of most authenticated place to buy handicraft and artifacts. Vast collection of items for home decore as well as gifting. Due to being a Govt outlet the service by staff may be some laid back but still I consider it one of finest place of it's type. A must visit.
  • Fabulous range of goods from pottery and crafts to clothes and furniture. All prices are marked so no haggling involved. Great place to browse and buy presents.
  • An excellent place for shopping Handicraft and Handloom sourced from all over India. Spread over 52000 sq.ft. showcasing artisans and weaver's from across the country.
  • It's a treasure house for handicraft. Woodwork, metalwork, bone carving, marble inlay, furnishing, handloom clothes, paintings, jewellery, shawls, silk scarves, printed silk shirts and zillions of other stuff. Is mind boggling. Pricey but unique and most important genuine
  • Well stocked in artifacts...could do better with clothes and fabric, a little overpriced but otherwise genuinely good choice, well curated stuff.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
