1. For Gold, Silver and Diamond Jewellery, we would recommend checking out stores like Caratlane, Amba Jewellers, Dhirsons Jewellers, Voylla, Taneja Jewellers and Senco Golds & Diamonds.

As soon as you enter the Flea Market from the KFC lane, you will spot all the massive stores for footwear for literally every occasion.

1. The Jutti Lane

Since the branding was a tad questionable, we’re calling them the triad of shoe stores. Bang opposite KFC, stalls number 12, 13, and 14 are Lajpat Nagar’s hotspot for juttis, kohlapuris and other Indian-inspired flats for men, women, and children. The stalls offer more or less the same in terms of design (threadwork, cutouts, solid colours, and embellishments), styles, and price ranges.

Pro Tip: There does exist a certain competitive streak between the three stores, so if you’re in the mood for some theatrics, you can feign disinterest in one, to get yourself a better rate at the next one.

2. Kins

Their massive store in Lajpat Nagar is always overflowing with shoppers looking for a good shoe bargain. While it’s amazing if you’re looking for the gold and fit-for-shaadi variety, you’ll have to hunt for the more sober options.

3. Narang Footwears

The Entire Narang brand is massive at Lajpat Nagar offering everything from apparel to fabrics. However, we would recommend the brand for footwear too as they stand tall at the market.

4. Weaving Threads

We have found this hidden gem in Lajpat Nagar which curates and style great footwear at an affordable price. All the shoes in this are very comfortable, have a durable outsole, and are of high quality.

While You will have plenty of options within the store for both men and women, there is also a separate lane for designer suits as well as fabric pieces for men. Raymond, Blackberries and Mayanavar to name a few.

What To Do

Visit the Lotus Temple

This Baha’i house of worship welcomes you with immaculately manicured gardens, nine ponds and a pathway leading to the huge prayer hall where anyone from any creed is welcome to sit and pray or meditate in silence. It is one of the most famous temples not just in Delhi but also in India. So, you must visit this temple at least once.

Here’s a Guide for the Lotus Temple

A trip to Iskcon Temple

It is located to the east of Kailash on the Hare Krishna hills in New Delhi which is 4 minutes away from Lajpat Nagar Metro Station. This temple is a reflection of peace and devotion of Lord Krishna and would certainly give a sense of peace.

A stroll at the Lodhi Gardens

Lodhi Gardens is 90 acres of lush green that has been built over a period of two centuries during the Sayyid dynasty. Often fitness workshops are held here as it’s a popular spot for fitness enthusiasts, so you can come here for that much needed workout sesh, or just sit, relax and gossip.

It’s crowded but Lajpat main sab kuch mil jayega.
