  • Love this place for wide collection of art and craft from all over India. Wide range of gift items but more suitable for foreigners. Prices are on the higher side for a domestic buyer. But the emporiums collection of carpets, silver ware and jewellery, paper machete and wooden articles, sculptures is amazing. Must visit during diwali week when the decor makes it wear festive look.
  • Even though a govt. run organisation , Pleasantly suprised to see the wide variety of artifacts, furniture , painting crockery.. Mostly visited by the foreign visits who wish to buy memorabilia, but worth a visit for the locals as well..Our Indian made goods are much more beautiful. Staff is very Helpful.
  • This is the place to be if you are visiting India for touristic purpose or even if you live here. The only one stop shop (ummm really a huge multistory complex), where you gets the diverse artifacts from the whole sub continent under one roof. Genuine price and items, just go for it. No haggling, fixed price, government run place, covering length and breath of India. Ethnic clothes, jewellery, art, metal artifacts, precious and semi precious stone work, wood works, furniture, tea et al. the list continues.
  • One stop location for all things synonymous with India and it's local produce. Safe prices too with no haggling required as prices are regulated by this government run initiative.
  • Always very interesting and a motivation for exclusive shopping which truly depicts-fine ART and HANDICRAFT OF INDIAN HERITAGE AND CULTURE.TRULI INSPIRING .
