Lajpat Nagar Central Market - The Twin Squares Market
Lajpat Nagar Central Market is one of the most popular shopping areas of Delhi, where people can find everything under the sun.Lajpat Nagar Central Market in Delhi is a woman’s delight and is known for selling the best collection of salwar suits and Kurtis. The market is very close to Greater Kailash and houses some of the best stores.Many consider Lajpat Nagar Central Market as a perfect one-stop shop, where shoppers can get whatever they desire.
Though the market is popular for ethnic wear, you can find bed sheets, accessories, footwear and utensils here as well. It has its share of glitzy showrooms too but it’s the roadside vendors that attract the Delhiites.The collection of one of the stores here, Kinston, popularly known as Kin’s, is very good. They have an elaborate collection of footwear starting from Rs. 295 to Rs. 595. The store also has a collection of bags and clutches for all types of occasions.
There are other small and big roadside vendors and stores that sell footwear, bags and junk pieces like colorful bangles, necklaces, bracelets etc. at decent prices. Dig in a little and you may find attractive neck pieces, like the ones worn by Sonam Kapoor in Dilli 6 at this market. Be a little creative and you can come up with your own style statement.
For ladies, you get a variety of trendy clothes such as kurtis, leggings, etc at decent prices. In addition, during winter, you can get a large variety of winter clothes such as cardigans, sweaters, jackets, pullovers as well as quilts.
The access to the Lajpat Nagar market is located under the Sriniwaspuri flyover, and is next to the Moolchand flyover. There is a fair amount of parking available, right on the road, although it would seem fairly chaotic for somebody who has not been here before. In the same market, if you feel hungry, you can get a lot of roadside eating options, some of which are fairly tasty.
Next to the central market, you will get 3C's, which a medium sized mall with movie halls, eating joints, and a fair amount of branded showrooms such as Shopper's Stopper and the like.
There are vendors and stalls selling western clothes as well. You can easily get stylish T-shirts and skirts for as low as Rs. 200. There are endless rows of stores that sell a variety of kurtis starting from as low as Rs. 150. The unstitched three piece suit set, which includes duppatta, salwar and kurta, can also be found at many stores here. You can get kalamkari suits, ikat suits, handloom fabrics, vegetable dyed dress material and salwar kameez, mangalgiri print, bhagalpuri print and a number of other choices.
Look around further and you would find merchants selling options for mix and match also. We personally liked the collection at Shehnaai which is a popular shop here. It sells different types of stitched kurtis and Anarkali suits in different sizes. These can be altered as per your size and you need not pay any alteration charges. You can team the kurta with the churidar tights or patiala salwars that are sold here.
If all that shopping has made you hungry then you can stop at the any of the corner shops and enjoy the delicious snacks like Chinese chaat or the Golgappas that are served there. The ‘kaala khatta’ and ‘chuski’ sold by the road side vendors can make shopping in the hot sun a little more bearable. If roadside eateries are not for you then walk over to TDI mall across the street and you may come across some food chain joints like McDonalds here.But be careful, Lajpat Nagar market is so gorgeous and the materialistic things there are so attractive that you will be tempted to purchase a lot many things and spend all your money.But be careful, Lajpat Nagar market is so gorgeous and the materialistic things there are so attractive that you will be tempted to purchase a lot many things and spend all your money.
