Though there are no malls to shop and hang around at, the lure lies in discovering the souvenirs in the cobbled alleys of this city. And with entire lanes dotted with speciality shops, you’ll hardly feel the need of a mall or supermarkets. Brush shoulders with the natives in the famous lanes of:

  • Naya Bazaar

Naya Bazaar is the main market at Ajmer. Here, you can get everything from antique jewellery, miniature paintings, woodwork to groceries! Plus, the smell of ittar wafts through the air, making shopping a pleasurable experience. The entire stretch of Naya Bazaar is dotted with exclusive shops. And do remember to try your luck at bargaining for everything except ittar, for that usually comes with a fixed price tag.

  • Dargah Bazaar

Dargah Bazaar is the other major shoppers’ hub at Ajmer. It’s also the entrance to the famous dargah and sees thousands of tourists in a day. It’s a swarming old world hub where you can get some really marvellous pieces of bracelets and other jewellery, antiques, paintings, woodworks, jutis and more. This place calls for a lot of bargaining and you must try to strike some good deals here, it’s the reason shopaholics love this place.

  • Mahila Mandi

Well, it’s a haven for women shoppers! It’s a place that throbs with the enthusiastic ladies that can be seen around, carrying an almost uncountable number of shopping bags. Come, hobnob with the true shopaholics to grab the best of antiques, curios, jewellery, tie and dye fabrics, embroidered shoes (Mojaris), trinkets, bangles, odhnis, lehngas and more. It’s a shoppers’ delight. Take bargaining as a rule here and you are good to go!

Other than these hubs, Station Road Market is another place that you ought to check out. Again, it’s a collection of all the specialities that Ajmer boasts of. And if all the shopping gets you hungry, gorge at the special kulfi and faluda at the Dargah Bazaar. Go, shop!
