Tour description

Old Delhi or Shahjahanabad was established by Mughal emperor Shahjahan who built the Taj Mahal.
He wanted to make a city that is the shopping capital of the world & he perfectly designed the city in that manner.

Old Delhi is just like Amazon for shopping, from needles to heavy machinery, You can find anything here.
An open-air market or commercial hub with numerous markets offering everything from books/stationery, traditional Saris to Raw Fabric and Silver jewelry and spices, Pashmina & cotton scarfs to Rugs and carpets. Old Delhi is any shopper’s paradise. It’s also a place that can be confusing to navigate, but if you know exactly where to head (and for what kind of products), old Delhi shopping can be a lot of fun. That’s exactly where your Guru to old Delhi’s bazaars will sort you out. 

  • Tip: Bargain hard! (Bargaining is kind of skill/art which you can learn & practice in Old Delhi markets with help of Guru

    Sadar is a wholesale market for well, a lot of things.
