Memory is one place of storing the remembrances of a vacation and the other one can be in the form of local handicrafts and souvenirs that is unique to the place. Among other things, walnut wood carvings, ranging from bowls to larger items of furniture with motifs of rose, lotus or chinar leaves, is a must buy if you are in Jammu. Drape yourself in one of its famous Pashmina shawls and enjoy the Jammu winter in its warmth. You can choose from the sozni needlework, which give different colours to each side of the shawl with the same design or the aari embroidery with flower works. Take back the famous hand made carpets and adorn your house to give it an ethnic feel.

Shop for these and much more at
Vir Marg, Raghunath Bazar, Gole Market and Residency Road, where you can also get dry fruits and other local delights. You can also check out the government emporium houses in these markets. Munch some dry fruits as you shop. With everything so intricately designed, you will need energy deciding on the best souvenir.
