Delhi’s marketplace, being in the capital of the diverse and culturally rich country that is India has always strived to be representative of the country’s culture. Its representativeness is reflected in the government’s efforts to promote handicrafts from various states through state emporiums and private retailers in the city’s market selling goods and souvenirs from different states; this is a unique advantage the shopper has in Delhi. Shopping in the state emporiums is like taking a mini-tour of India and wading through a treasure-filled collection of souvenirs.
Delhi has another advantage of having a vast, organized marketplace which has a strong historical background – Chandni Chowk market. Establishments here are grouped, which was how it was designed to be on its inception, during the rule of the Mughal ruler, Shahjahan, who was very detail-oriented.

Delhi has a wide range of shopping establishments at hand for the shopper, traditional bazaars selling goods ranging from accessories to street food to the swankiest of malls. The wholesale markets of Delhi also offer products at considerably lower prices than elsewhere in the country.
