  • Handicraft Items

    The city is famous for its distinctive handicraft items like splendid Batik Painting, unique Blue Pottery, Mojaris (a kind of shoe), sandalwood carving goods, exotic stones and marble carvings.  You will love to shop for goodies at places like Johari Bazar, Sanganer village, Kishanpol Bazaar, Khajano ka Rasta and Ramganj Bazar.
     

  • Semi-precious and precious stones

    Jaipur is also a well-known market for semi-precious and precious stones as well as for cutting, polishing and setting of the stones. By and large, the city is famous for emeralds, topaz and diamonds. In fact, Jaipur’s Bandhej and Kundan jewellery has also acquired a legendary reputation of sorts.

    Furthermore, the local textile industry has also added to Jaipur’s fame. Especially block printed textiles and Bandhej (tie and dye) work of Bagru and Sanganer are much sought after.
