The vibrant culture of Gwalior never ceases to take a hold of your choices. And choices there are many here. So, are you game for spoiling yourself with some of the popular items that Gwalior has a special name for itself? Read on.

  • Jewellery

    Jewellery is a woman’s best friend. Or, so they say. But, it also adds to the family wealth. And when there are the antiques of special Gwalior art, there is simply no way you can avoid splurging on it.  
    Try Mangalam Jewellers and Tanishq in Sarafa Bazaar, while Anand Jewellers and A.P. Jewellers are famous in Laskar market.

  • Handlooms

    Light and delicate cotton and silk saris like Maheshwari and Chanderi have almost become the trademark of Gwalior’s handloom industry.
    You must try
    Kothari at Sarafa Bazar for chanderi, brocade and silk sari. The stuff available is very genuine and the shop rates high in terms of customer satisfaction. Also MP Khadi Sangh, situated nearby, is an excellent option for exploring handlooms.
    If you are searching for wholesale clothes market, then your search ends here. Gwalior has many of them such as
    Dahi Mandi, Naya Bazaar and Gandhi Bazaar.

  • Handicrafts and Artefacts

    Gwalior has a rich cultural and artistic history. That reflects in the unique and brilliantly designed handicrafts, artistic stone carvings and artefacts that are available in the markets of this city. Ranging from leather products and bags to innovative silk and woolen carpets, Gwalior handicrafts industry is a flourishing one.
    MD Fine Arts in Subhash Market is a famous stop for amazing paintings. Very lovely silver boxes decorated with images can be found at Arihant Emporium, which is located close to Jai Villas Palace.

Apart from these specialities, Gwalior is a place that happens to have all the conventional shopping items lined up in its hundreds of shops.
