Delhi Shopping

Connaught Place

  • Outdoor/Flea/Green Markets

Fodor's Review

Open every day but Sunday from about 10 to 7:30, this is the former commercial district of the British Raj. Pillared arcades and a wheel-shaped layout make it a pleasant place to stroll, especially the inner circle, though you have to get used to the intermittent entreaties of hawkers and beggars. Shops run the gamut from scruffy to upscale. Beneath the green park at the center of Connaught Place is Palika Bazaar, a cheap underground market with all the charm of a Times Square subway station. Avoid it: it's a favorite haunt of pickpockets, and many shopkeepers are dishonest.
