Janpath is a bustling marketplace that houses both government-approved shops and open-air stalls. Plan to visit soon after arriving in Delhi to grab a few local and traditional clothing items. Of course, there are hundreds of options: countless carpets, shoes, clothing, jewelry, handicrafts, textiles, accessories, paintings, and furniture.
Be sure to have rupees available. Most government-regulated shops accept credit cards, though cash is preferred, and the bazaar is cash only. Also, don't miss a cold coffee at De Paul's, famously served in a glass bottle with a straw.
Clothing, fabrics, textiles, and traditional home décor abound at Janpath, a popular market near Connaught Place. Janpath includes a mix of government regulated shops and open air stalls, though the real deals and ethnic wares are often sold by vendors on the streets and alleys surrounding the market. Many of the merchants travel from their respective states to sell the goods, resulting in a wide range of designs and patterns from across India. Take the time to explore - and bargain!
