  • Truly an amazing place. 6 floors of cloth, clothes, furniture, tea, candles and all sorts of handicrafts Great quality and ideal place for ethical gifts as products come from Indian artists. Highly recommended!
  • This is a great place to so for Indian are and handcrafts. The staff is helpful, friendly, and polite. I am a foreigner, so I liked having the fixed prices without having to haggle.
  • It's a beautiful place to find the true Indian essence. It's built for the one with the ethnic taste and is a treat for the international tourists who want to take back some Indian sovineir with them back to their place. The items are some times a bit over priced but compared to the collection they have its okay I guess. They have a lot of floors with furnitures, brass decorations, clothing and even tea. The staff is also very polite and helpful and they make the purchase even more delightful.
  • Has many exclusive handicrafts. Among the oldest stores in central Delhi. Must visit to shop for souvenirs and collectibles. Reasonably priced and also has a range of items across price points. The wooden section has nice collection of items for home decor.
  • One can find very good hand made craft products at reasonable prices. They have very good collection.

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.
