Baba Kharak Singh Marg


If you would like to have the pick of all states, go to the State Emporia Complex on Baba Kharak Singh Marg. Shawls are the main attraction of Zoon, the Kashmir emporium, and bronze lamps and icons of Poompuhar, the Tamil Nadu emporium. Those interested in exquisite silks should go to Cauvery, the Karnataka emporium. Amrapali, the Bihar emporium, is famous for Madhubani paintings, while Rajasthali, the Rajasthan emporium, and Gurjari, the Gujarat emporium, are popular destinations for printed cottons, miniature paintings and jewellery. You get tea at Manjusha, the West Bengal emporium, and wood carvings at Mrignayani, the Madhya Pradesh emporium. Manjusha is also popular for its silk and cotton saris - Taant, Dhakai, Baatik, Jamdani, Kantha, Baluchari and Swarnachuri. The three - storeyed Tripura emporium called Purbasha is jam-packed with goodies for your home: beautiful stuff made of bamboo and cane.

Rajiv Gandhi Handicrafts Bhavan, right next to the emporia complex, houses stores that sell books, paper products, rural handicrafts, etc.
