Recently, we went to Delhi for a full-on Punjabi wedding of a friends’. Not having seen much of Delhi, we decided to spend 2 days prior, to do all our touristy activities. After visiting the Red Forts, Chandi Chowks, Delhi Gates, and all the other must-haves, we finally wound up at Dilli Haat which is an open air pan-India  art & craft village, where people & curio shops  from various states present & sell their local artifacts.

The buzz & vibe at the entrance itself made me feel that I am going to love this place. Once inside: Delhi gets transformed into this colorful bazaar of enthralling stalls, colorful artifacts & diverse people! The numerous thatched roof shops and kiosks from various Indian states, proudly display their own local artisan talent and goods. Products offered include wood carvings, embellished footwear, sophisticated fabric and drapery, gems, beads, brassware, metal crafts, silk and wool fabrics, and many more amazing articles.

The best thing about this place is that unlike the traditional weekly markets, Dilli Haat is a permanent set-up. So all through the year, whenever we want we can soak in a variety of cultural traditions & artifacts of India.

If you happen be in Delhi, do make sure to a pay visit to Dilli Haat, which is not just a market place; it’s rather a showpiece of traditional Indian culture- a forum where rural life and folk art are brought closer to an urban clientele.
