Shopping in Udaipur is quite an aesthetic treat in itself, given the colourful lanes, beautiful crafts, astonishing intricacy and lovely knick knacks one can observe here. Head to one of these markets in Udaipur to pick out great jootis, camel leather items, silk produce and much more:


  • Hathi Pol
    An important market in Udaipur which displays all sorts of handicrafts and folk arts of Rajasthan, Hathi Pol is one of the less touristy (frequented more by locals) and hence fairly priced markets here. Do make it a point to pick up the famous Rajasthani Miniature Paintings when you stroll down these streets. Even if feel the painting is reasonable, do try to bargain.
    Best to park your car at the City Palace complex and head here walking.

    Timings: 9.30am to 5.30pm
    Address: City Palace
    Udaipur
    Rajasthan
    India

  • Bada Bazaar
    The place which can be called the main market of Udaipur without a doubt, the Bada Bazaar is a vibrant market, always buzzing with activity and home to some of the best eateries in Udaipur. Housing all sorts of shops from big showrooms to small exhibitions, Bada Bazaar gives an all new meaning to the term shopping. Pick up camel leather items (bags, wallets, footwear and more), jewellery (both silver and camel bone) or Rajasthani fabrics (Batik and Bandhini prints) from this market at dirt cheap prices. Don't forget to carry your shopping bags to this place and go back with steal deals and huge smiles!
    You may want to excuse this one if you are looking out for expensive stuff!
    Timings: 9.30am to 5.30pm
    Address: City Palace
    Udaipur
    Rajasthan
    India

  • Rajasthali
    If you are running short and time and want to do some quick shopping, head to Rajasthali, a handicraft emporium run by the Rajasthan Government to promote the folk arts and handicrafts of the state. Showcasing everything from fabrics to puppets and jewellery to footwear, Rajasthali is a good place to discover all the myriad colours of Rajasthan. Pick up those colourful jootis that caught your fancy and that oxidised silver pendant you have been wanting forever. Save yourself the hassle of bargaining as these shops are fixed price and assure the value of your money.

    Address: Chetak Circle
    Udaipur
    Rajasthan
    India
    Telephone: +91-294-2429068
    Official Website: http://www.rajasthali.gov.in/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=66&Itemid=34

  • Sadhna Emporium

    On a similar concept as Rajasthali is the Sadhna Emporium which is an artisan run venture. One of the largest shopping places in Udaipur, Sadhna Emporium helps in promoting the forgotten crafts of the artisan and also contributes towards community development. Find the fine cottons of Rajasthan here in the myriad hues of this state and save handicrafts of the state from becoming obsolete.

    You can try to bargain here but don't be too harsh on the artisan who is already battling brand powers and mall cultures.

    Address: Jagdish Temple Road
    Udaipur
    Rajasthan
    India
    Telephone: +91-294-2417454

Tempted enough? Plan a trip to this beautiful city in Rajasthan. Also check out the wide range of Udaipur tour packages. Go shopping in Udaipur to pick up eclectic goodies or handicrafts, but do make sure you bargain while you are at it! Some other markets you can check out are Chetak Circle, Bapu Bazaar and City Palace Shopping Complex. Do remember me when you are buying gifts for your loved ones!

Happy shopping!
