    This hidden Old Delhi market is a shopper's paradise, especially if you're the kind who likes your suits heavily embroidered, and bangles glittery like unicorn sweat! Although at first, the market is a little daunting (with all its traditional fabrics and heavy jewellery), you can find some pretty neat gems here. Think along the lines of super pretty balis (brown folks like us wore hoops before they were cool, just FYI), colourful dupattas, floral jewellery, and more. 

    Let us take you through what all options you have when you're here!
