Men, Monastery Market Has All the Cheap Fashion You Need
What Makes It Awesome
Hidden under the ISBT Shahdara Link Flyover is a men’s shopping haven called the Monastery market. From comfy summer tanks, t-shirts, formal shirts, trousers and jeans to winter woolens and leather jackets, you’ll find it all in this Tibetan market—that too at affordable rates.
When we went here (in a summer month), it was well-stocked with everything a guy might need (wardrobe wise, of course). In addition to printed and plain cottons and denim, we also saw plenty of accessories, bags and footwear. But the shopkeepers told us that the place is a real stand-up guy for winterwear.
We loved that the rates, too, were not exorbitant at all. The price range for shirts began at INR 300 and, for trousers at INR 700—you can always bargain and get it for lower than that.
What Could Be Better
If your size is on the bigger side, sadly there’s a high chance you may not find stuff that fits.
Also, reaching the place can be a bit tricky. You’ll have trouble finding a place to park, so we suggest using public transport. The nearest metro station is Kashmere Gate.
Entry to the place is easy to miss; you’ve got to keep an eye out for its gate. In this case, Google Maps is going to be your saviour.
Make a note—the market is shut on Monday.
