Once you have explored the beauty and holiness of town, there comes the favourite part of the vacation, Shopping. There are plethora of options for shoppers where a wide variety of exquisite souvenirs are available. Want to get on with the mission then explore

  • Moti Bazaar

    One of the busiest and the most lively markets in town, this bazaar, located between Harki Pauri and the Upper Road, treats you with all that Haridwar has to offer as its spirit. From Vermillion to the sacred beads of Rudrakshas, from idols of different Hindu deities to the containers of the holy water of the Ganges and from pickles to ayurveda medicines, the bazaar has something to offer to everyone. Best explored on foot, this market gives you the essence of the old world charm that is the core of this religious town. Haggle over the prices of items here, that imperative. Not to miss is the badam milk in a kulad, hot jalebis and maybe paranthas from the roadside vendors.

  • Upper Road

    This is another area of town that is bustling with people all the time. There is this special range of pickles and chutneys that you find at the shops in this area which is amazing. Availability of all the other kinds of souvenirs stand true in the case of this market too. Not to miss are the items that are carved out of the river stones. The toy kitchen sets are a hit among the little girls.

  • The UP Handloom Emporium

    This is the place where you will find the most intriguing pieces of handicraft on display. Whether they are sarees or pottery items, crotchet or hand woven mats and carpets, there is everything! Although, the prices here are relatively higher and there is a less chance of them coming down. Still, try the emporium if you want to explore the marketed originality of the place.

  • Gandhi Ashram, Kankhal and Jwalapur

    Now, these are the three locations where you will find everything that town has to offer like the Moti Bazaar. There are jewellery pieces along with handicraft items, there are pickles with ayurvedic medicines, in short, like I said, there is everything. Explore the areas on foot to get the feel of the place. Try the local food at several outlets.

There are so many options to shop from, right? right? So, don't forget to carry an extra bag or two for these souvenirs that are going to treat you with the best gifts town has to offer.
