Just like any other holy city in the country, there are lots and lots of bronze idols of gods and goddesses, cheap T shirts, handicraft, pendants, stone work and such stuff available in Joshimath too. Just read on about the things that can be shopped in Joshimath.

  • Devotional CDs and Dvds

    You will find all the possible collections of Bhajans from all the singers possible being sold at every corner of the town. With that, also enjoy the Trance/Lounge music available at many spots all over the town, that would be a lovely partner in your effort of learning or doing Yoga.
  • T Shirts

    There are T shirts with Gods printed, there are bronze and silver accessories which are generally devoted to Lord Shiva, Krishna and Ganesha.

  • Puja Items

    Also, because Joshimath is a holy city that is frequented by pilgrims and is an important stopover en route to popular pilgrimages such as Badrinath, Gangotri, Yamunotri and Kedarnath, you will find all the puja items at many of the stalls in the town. From all kinds of dhoop battis to aarti plates and from various kinds of tikas and Yoga mats to the cans that are used to bring the holy water from the Ganges.

Keep in mind the golden rule of haggling over the prices. Shop in Joshimath to know what it is like to shop in a country driven by religious values. It’s an experience in itself. Explore the town and see that for yourself.
