The bazaars of Jaipur are a delight to the senses. You can visit Johari Bazaar around Hawa Mahal for the fine pieces of indigenous silver jewelry, Nehru Bazaar for intricately embroidered shoes called ‘jootis’ or for blue pottery, Chaura Rasta for books, lac jewelry and Kishanpol Bazaar for collectibles for friends back home. Tripolia Bazaar is where you can get yourself colorful rugs and carpets. The bazaars are a treat as they are filled with colors. It will give you a sense of the traditional, vibrant life and style of Rajasthan. With pink buildings on either side explore the winding lanes and shops laden with artwork, textiles and brocade in Bapu Bazaar. The shops pour out onto the streets- making the roads tiny, hazardous for walking yet oh so colorful. Even if you are not a prolific shopper just the sight of Rajasthani women decked in jewelry, men in colorful turbans and snake charmers shall captivate you. You can even mingle with the locals, sample the street food- the kulfis, the samosas, the kachoris, and lassi. Watch the silversmiths and lacquer bangle-makers work up-close. Textiles to trinkets you can find it all in the bazaars of Jaipur. Soak yourself in the hustle, bustle and the beauty of the colorful chaos yet return to the serene ambiance of Sirsi Haveli at the end of the day.
