    It's a State Department store, in which there are fixed prices. You will find everything from cheap to expensive and even very expensive here really. We were able to decide difficult with the huge choice of elephants and have us always reflected in love to another. Which go through and be amazed is really recommended.

    This is the official souvenir shop. A 10 minutes walk from Connaught place. One way is the front door a I missed our first small. But inside is a surprise. Very wide and has four floors. We shop with no escalators 4F, receive product retrieval of next door to pay at the cashier (always crowded with civil servants this cashier pretty negligent) down to the first floor. So that every single price, very easy. Then were deceived by better quality of goods is not. Though price is very attractive. Things like buying souvenirs everyone on the first floor are lined up, but look on each floor. Particularly attractive is a clothes shop on the fourth floor. India Sally ready-to-wear is a bargain. Until the scarf and Sally like shirts and pants, is a whopping 5000 yen. To wear it, let swagger through the streets of India

    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.

    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.
