Karol Bagh is a market in Central Delhi. The uniqueness of this market is you get fantastic, reasonably priced goods for everyone- kids, males and females. No doubt malls are catching up, but the kind of things you get here you don’t get in malls. You will find wholesale and retail shops. Purchasing can be done at bargain prices if you know the product and its original price, otherwise there are chances that you may be tricked to pay more. Many budget hotels and eateries are around.
The market has a lot of variety, and prices are moderate. It has all kinds of shops ranging from cosmetics to clothes, electronics repair services to cobblers; you name it, Karol Bagh has got it all. It’s an exciting place to get a feeling of the local shopping culture. You rarely see foreigners here. It is not recommended to visit during noon as the combination of heat and dirt makes it a bit unbearable.
There are police personnel deployed around the clock. It used to be a crowded area and of late people were not willing to come here because of traffic jams. Now the government has taken measures to decongest the whole area of Karol Bagh. They have also provided free rides from parking lots to shopping roads. It’s a pedestrian-friendly market now.
There are plenty of shops selling both branded and non-branded stuff. If you are after the former, you can find Pantaloons, Aurelia, Westside, and more. A vast collection of dresses, shawls, even a dedicated toy shop for the little ones can be seen here.
Several shops line the streets, but it is the people selling things off the backs of carts, motorbikes and out of bags that catch your eye.
Karol Bagh houses the iconic Roshan di Kulfi, locals’ favourite stop when it comes to awesome Kulfis and Chaat.
Do not miss Punjab Sweet Corner for their golgappas and sweets and look out for the small street-side vendors selling moonglet.
Furthermore, you can enjoy lassi, coconut water, not to forget the refreshing lime soda.
