One of the most useful things about Delhi wintertimes is that many places around the city allow you to soften in the sun. But one of our favoured spots in the town is Dilli Haat which is placed directly opposite the INA market!
- One of the most useful things about Dilli Haat is that it is an open-air market. While you want to fight that with the air pollution and improving AQI, what’s the purpose of wandering around in public. But here is the large part. The air condition is getting better, and so is the winter sun.
- You get to prefer a tour, almost the country at one point. Dilli Haat showcases genuine art and craft from around the nation that has been made by the regional artisans. It is an action by the Delhi Tourism and Transport Development Corporation (DTTDC) and has been built like a village haat. There are dedicated stalls that showcase social outcomes from various states.
- From paintings to dresses, jewellery to furniture, they own it all. Get your fingers on the pure pashmina or the mojris from Punjab; choose up Odiya wall-art or some gorgeous Rajasthani jewellery. Dilli Haat has all this and more extra. Rather than visiting 26 several emporiums, isn’t it enough to visit 26 stalls at one spot? One of the extraordinary things about buying here is that there is no middle man. So, what you spend goes straight to the artisan.
- People from around the world can’t stop talking about Indian food, the cuisines and the variety. Even if you are well-travelled, we are sure you might have missed out on a few authentic dishes here or there. But that’s the thing about Dilli Haat. Be it North Eastern, or South Indian; you get flavourful and delicious preparations at the stalls here. The specific state government runs most of the food stalls, so you can be assured that whatever you are having is quite authentic.
- Dilli Haat also has an amphitheatre. If you end up going on a weekend or during carnivals, like Diwali or this season of the year, you can get a look of cultural offerings. Shopping, food and music, doesn’t get more genuine than this.
- This goes for an excellent spot for a family trip. There is something in store for everyone. Toys, pottery, caricature artists, and even a convenient place to sit and rest, is what you’ll see here.
- Reaching Dilli Haat isn’t trouble either. The INA metro station is found very close to the complex. It doesn’t signify what part of the city are you reaching from, because it won’t take you can skip the rush hour on roads. Walk out of the metro station, and it’s only a minute-long road to the market area.
- If you want to execute the most of your trip to Dilli Haat, once you are done, you can travel to the places nearby. Walk over the road and shop at the INA market that has some of the most unusual fruits and spices open in the city. If you want to travel further, you can do a quick visit to India Gate, or Hauz Khas village. However, if you’re going to make the most of your day at Dilli Haat, we’d say hold around.
- We kept the best for the last! You can undergo all of this for just ₹30. Yes. The ticket for a grown-up is ₹30, and up to 12 years of age is ₹10.
