Every Christmas, a line of makeshift stalls pop up just outside the main gates of St. Mary’s Basilica and stretch all the way up to the Beef Market. The sidewalks are a great place to pick up nativity sets for a few hundred rupees. Giant-sized bells in bright reds, strings of beads, shiny bows and stars are all available to take home.
Once you’re done here, you can also walk to O.P.H Road, near Taj Hotel. Stride down the road opposite the restaurant, past a Bata store, and a short walk later you’ll find a small gully that’s crammed with a row of shops. Spend some time looking around and you’ll find a few steals like ornaments with colourful snowmen, mistletoes and all kinds of glitzy streamers.
