  • Feeling of Shinjuku in Central Delhi close to New Delhi railway station, Japan? The Connaught place. To its South is North and South is Janpath. A short walk back to Connaught place and left government-run museums like Emporium. Have only one bag, not store their luggage at the entrance number, looking around while shopping. Alone takes time in the room, take your time. Price is high, but the quality is good! is a featured shop you can buy various furnishings in India each State while in Delhi.

  • Taken here by our tour operator at end of stay, forced, we discovered a nice store. Especially for carpets. Great business to do in negotiating.

The store owner knows very well his merchandise which is significant.

  • Cottage emporium is a heritage site. It contains one of the largest inventory and variety of hand crafted goods from all over India. If ever, anyone wants to see traditional work by India's skilled artisans, this is the place to go. The prices may shock you but don't compare them to cheap factory produced or plaster of Paris goods. They also organize exhibitions periodically for specific kinds of goods. The variety ranges from clothes, jewelry, utensils, decorative, household items, furniture to many more categories. It's definitely worth a few visits just to do window shopping.
  • If you are into authentic Indian crafts this is the lace to go. A one stop shop for crafts across India numerous styles and innumerable designs. From clothing to essential oils to handicrafts everything under one roof. To add to it there is amazing collection of Indian teas. The staff is very knowledgeable and they are very helpful.
  • No bargaining, no haggling and the best part no pushy salesman to deal with. I love it that I can walk all four floors without sometimes bothering me. And all the artifacts are really great.
  • You go to each store and choose the merchendise, they give you receipts which you pay in the end at the ground floor. After that you can collect your goods from collection desk. Nice store!
  • They jave a wonderful collection of all kinds of handicraft. Bought a good set of carved marble that was so beautiful. Loved it.
