Shopping at DELHI - Abracadabra (I) - 31

Guys, Delhi is melting pot of many peoples and cultures. Some of India's best shipping is found in Delhi, a relatively easy place to shop as long as you know what to buy and where to go. Visitors find a wide choice of items such as carpets, silks, jewellery, leather and silver ware, handicrafts and hand printed cottons. Each item is available in a range of prices, depending on the quality and the outlet. Each of its markets has distinctive ambiance adding a special flavour to the experience of shopping.

In the old city is Chandni Chowk close to the largest mosque in Asia, the Jama Masjid. Many of the shops here are over a hundred years old and the mesh of lanes and by lanes are full of treasures to be found. Among the by lanes are Dariba, the silver market, Khari Baoli, the spice market and Kinari Bazaar for trimming and tinsel.

Connaught Place, New Delhi's original shopping arcade was planned as part of the Imperial capital in 1911. One can find up-market products here from designer stores to Chinese shoemakers.

On Baba Kharak Singh Marg, are government state emporia that offer a glimpse of handicrafts of each state. As does the Central Cottage Industries Emporium on Janpath. Across the road are a string of Tibetan shops selling accessories.

Sundernagar Market, across The Oberoi, is the place to shop for antiques and silver jewellery. The stores keep a choice selection, especially of silver jewellery from Ladakh, semi-precious stones, copper and silver object d'art. Not far from Sundernagar is the Crafts Museum Shop, attached to the museum in Pragati Maidan.

In South Delhi are the up-market shopping centres, South Extension, Greater Kailash I and II, Green Park and New Friends Colony.
