As a country, India has and various cultures and traditions. In fact it is considered that every state has different cultures and traditions. The art and handicrafts that come in from all the states are a reflection of the tradition. The kind of art and handicrafts you get to buy while in Delhi has no limits. It is a must to pick up some form of memoirs of the country while on a visit to the capital.
Delhi is one of the best places to do your shopping while in India and if you are on a visit, do not miss this opportunity.
We shall cover a few items that you must buy if you visit the capital. Do not worry about the space in your bags; that will be looked after.
Clothes- India is one of the best countries to buy any form of textile. You will get every form of clothing worn in India, right from cotton kurtas, silk and cotton saris to Benaras and Kanjeevaram silk sari. The cotton saris you get are colourful and have some heavy embroidery. You will find clothing of every state in India here.
Visit the Central Cottage Emporium at the Jawahar Bhavan to buy cotton saris and kurtas. If you are looking to buy saris or any other clothing from other states of India, then visit the Baba Kharak Singh Marg. Another place where you could buy fabrics and ready made clothes is the Chandni Chowk. Indian kurtis and salwars are available at the Central Market in Lajpat Nagar. Usually, buying from these markets could give you a good bargain and they keep coming out with a lot of latest offers on fashionable clothes.
Jewelry- you cannot leave India without a piece of the classic and traditional jewelry art form. The most popular form of jewelry is the Kundan jewelty. Originating in Rajasthan, the jewelry is beautifully created with gems and pearls. If you think that pearls and gems do not fit your budget, then you could also opt for the Kundan jewelry with artificial stones which is as popular. The Kundan form of jewelry is found at the Delhi Haat. You could also pick up some silver ware from the Tibetan and Janpath Market. Dariba Kalan is another place where you could get gold and silver ware for the best deals.
Tea- India has always been popular for its tea. A visit to the local super market will surprise you with the range of tea leaves available, and remember these are not the ones that are exported. So this leaves you with no choice but to pick up some tea before you leave the country. You could choose the flavour required depending on your taste. The tea leaves sold in India meet international standards, so you need not judge the authenticity. There are several places to buy tea leaves in Delhi, one of them being the Mittal tea house and the other Regalla Tea House. Located in Sunder Nagar, this place attracts several people who throng to taste tea of different flavours. Located near the Connaught Place, this place is closed on Sundays.

- Guest 8 years agoThe neckline of this Kurta Pyijama is bold in gold. A huge pattern covers the front of the kurta pajama for men from the neck to the chest. The curves and dots in this design are a blend of traditional and modern forms of embroidering. It was carefully crafted in mind keeping the Indians global taste.
